adaptive layer thickness not displayed on layers view

Posted · adaptive layer thickness not displayed on layers view

I have a prusa  mk3 and i was waiting for this feature to come out since I like  cura much better than Slic3r. So i found the setting to turn it on but I cannot find any way to view it

 

it just shows compatibility view with no option for layer thickness.

Compatibility mode doesn't allow other colors schemes. To see one of the 3 other schemes you have to switch to the normal layer view (if that's possible on your pc).

You mean you're not in compatibility mode anymore but can't see the different color schemes that are available? It should look like the attached screenshot.

You're still in compatibility mode. Please go to preferences -> general and switch to normal layer view mode (if your PC can handle that). Then the drop down for new color schemes becomes available (after restart).

It's the last checkbox in the "viewport behaviour" section. Disable it and then restart.

Then Cura has detected that your graphics card or drivers are not compatible with the minimum required OpenGL version (4.1?). You can still slice and use adaptive layers, you just can't preview the layers in Cura.

@mrSEADEMON, you can probably force Cura to use the nvidia card instead of the embedded gpu, and then the full layer view should be available.
