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

Recommended Posts

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...

    • "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.
