Filaments All Show as Grey in Preview


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Filaments All Show as Grey in Preview

I'm printing with an Ultimaker 3 using PLA in Extruder 1 and PVA in Extruder 2.  Both types of filament show as the same color (grey) in Cura 4.1 preview.


How can I make each filament a different color so they be distinguished?  I looked in the Color Scheme menu and chose Material Color.  Both extruders are checked.. The color indicators next to them are both orange.  However there is no way to change the color and the color isn't used in the preview anyway.
