Cura: how to force use of Mesa on Windows 10?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura: how to force use of Mesa on Windows 10?

I'm trying to use a post 15.04.6 version of Cura on a Windows 10 box that has GPU support limited to OpenGL 1.1 (and this will be ever thus: Intel are not writing Windows 10 drivers for the relevant chipset).

 

My first thought was to get Cura to use Mesa, but I have searched far and wide for ways to achieve (including all the Federico Dossena ideas at https://fdossena.com/?p=mesa/index.frag) and am having no joy: Cura's GL probe is still returning no support.

 

Has anyone out there managed to get Mesa working with Cura on Windows 10? I can get a different box if I have to, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing something obvious...

I bit the bullet and paid £12 for a second-hand GPU (Radeon 5450 Low Profile seemed best for my SFF Optiplex 760). Now I can run up-to-date Cura, so all is well. I needed to uninstall the Mesa overrides I'd tried to get working.
