Cura 3.2.1 functions not working

Recommended Posts

First, I want to say HELLO! This is my 1st post here and also, I would like to give everyone associated with Cura a real big THANK YOU. It is quite amazing to me to have these resources available without having to sell the first born or hock a body part. This is an amazing place, and amazing software.

I hope that someone can help with a few issues I’m having with Cura 3.2.1. My research so far has not netted much results. To begin with I’m working from an Asus laptop with 8gb, Win 7 Pro, 64 bit, quad core i3.

The first issue is that I can’t review the toolpath. After slicing, click Layer View, I get the vertical bar that controls the layer up or down. There is no horizontal bar for the toolpath.

The second item is that I wanted to print a temperature tower but when I tried to edit the G code via Extensions > Post Processing > Modify G-Code nothing happens. When I check Plugins the G Code Writer is greyed out but the box has a tick mark. I’ve tried numerous ways to install the plugin but no success.

I have uninstalled/re-installed Cura 3.2.1 several times without success, so now I’m here looking for help. I don’t know if any previous versions that I had loaded suffered the same issues due to the fact that I am just now advancing to the point to be able to understand and use these functions.


Thanks for any input in advance.

I understand that the GPU in the laptop may not be up to the task to be able to render the toolpath, but where can I find what the requirements are needed for the GPU.


Also I haven't had any success in being able to do any post processing. The only button that seems to work within the "Extensions" group is the Changelog button.


Any help would be appreciated.
