cura3.thumb.jpg.4337be92da600ed63dcce901f4b5e0ef.jpgGreetings Ultimake people,

I am having a problem with Cura 3.0.3 where the buildplate is rendering in full black instead of being transparent and graduated as per previous versions or the new scaling graduations listed in the 3.x release notes.

Please refer to attached image.

I have been unsuccessful in trying to find a setting/s within Cura or my graphics drivers to try and recify this - please help!

Cheers,

Hotend

That is partly my fault. The shader that should draw the grid lines is broken on older GPUs. A fix was made, though it was not included in the 3.0 release.

You can fix this by replacing C:\Program Files\Cura 3.0\resources\shaders\grid.shader with this file:

Thanks ahoeben,

Ill give this a shot later - I figured it would be graphics drivers as I have an old Nvidia Quadro 6000 workstation card.

Cheers,

UPDATE:

Cheers ahoeben,

The updated shader file works fine and the buildplate grid works perfectly.

Headsup: Graphics card wasn't a Quadro 6000 but an OLDER Quadro FX 4600, for reference.

Cheers again!

Hello Folks,

I am getting the same black build plate on the OSX cura 3.0.3 version.

Any Ideas on how I correct this. I am using an older MacPro Desktop

Hello Folks,

Having the same issue with solid black build plate:
