Layer View + Line Type


Recommended Posts

Posted · Layer View + Line Type

Suddenly my Cura (v3.2.1) software has stopped showing me the various lines in the view mentioned in the title.  I've tried switching to some different default quality profiles, but nothing seems to bring it back.  Anyone have any ideas?  

 

Thanks!

    did you move the layer slider to look at the layers from top to bottom? I noticed that sometimes after a change is made in the settings the model is grey until you move the layer slider. Is this what you mean?

    Try two things - try setting line width extra small briefly just to see if that makes a difference - try 0.1mm line width.

     

    Also look at the model in "xray" view mode.  If you see any red then that's the problem.  Red indicates that the model isn't manifold (doesn't have an obvious (to a computer) inside and outside due to too many walls or holes.

    Thanks for the suggestions.  I tried both of them and got nothing.  The line width adjustment had no effect, and the Xray View had no red, only blue and purple.

    I believe I figured it out.  See in my screenshot, I don't have "Extruder" checked?  Seems that has to be checked for anything to show up...

    For multi-extruder printers, you can toggle showing what each extruder adds to the print.Instead of "Extruder", you would have an "Extruder 1" and an "Extruder 2". I agree this option makes no sense for single-extruder printers.
