Cura 3.0.3 Black Buildplate

Recommended Posts

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:

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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
