Please Improve Cura Visibility for Differently Abled

Recommended Posts

Cura 3.2.1 has some important state indicators that are challenging to see and interpret. It would be very helpful if these were a more visually obvious.

For example:

  • When selecting which nozzle for a specific part, the difference between the selected nozzle and the non-selected nozzle is just a few pixels in size and a change in the line segments.
  • Selecting the nozzle (on the right of the screen) for the configuration of each nozzle is also very subtle. Just the addition of the cyan inlay on the button.

I have started prints with the wrong materials on more than one occasion - even though I am aware of my poor vision.

It is possible to toggle the display using the "Layer View" option. But this is not the default setting for the "View" options, and there is a lag in this display as the object is re-sliced.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Mark

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
