Cura 13.06.4 - black object

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 13.06.4 - black object

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 ?

I have the same problem, but only on one of my laptops. Using the latest version 13.11.

This has something to do with the graphics card.

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
