Cura 13.06.4 - black object

Recommended Posts

Since I updated Cura from version 13.04 (to 13.06.3 and 13.06.4) I experience a strange behaviour.

Loaded objects are displayed in solid black color (along with the Ultimaker bed representation). All other features work correctly.

I read a post saying that this problem was supposed to be solved in 13.06.4 but this seems not to be the case for me.

HW : laptop Acer Aspire 5315 Windows Vista Home edition. Cura 13.04 used to work OK on this same computer.

Has anyone a clue on how to solve this issue ?

As of 13.06 Cura uses shaders instead of the fixed function pipeline to render the 3D models.

For a none-technical user, this means I'm making better and more use of 3D card features. However, some cards seem to misbehave in this case. Updating videocard drivers helps in most cases.

Something else you could try, is opening "Cura/Cura/gui/util/opengl.py" with a text editor and change:

 


def hasShaderSupport():
if bool(glCreateShader):
return True
return False

To:

 


def hasShaderSupport():
return False

    • 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.
