Hide Cura printer bed visually

Recommended Posts



Is there an option to hide the printerbed temporary in Cura (3.5). The reason is when the bottom-part of the printobject is checked, it is not very well visible due to the printerbed drawn in Cura.

Also when using the custom support-addon, or custom support blocker-addon at the bottom area of the printobject, then the same issue occurs (bad visibility of the printobject).

The left side where also the button is for the custom support (blocker) would be great :)

Maybe when more people use the mentioned addon's (or different ones), then the neccesity of such feature will be more noticable.
Thanks for your fast reply.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
