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.

In preview I switched to displaying “line type”. It’s much more informative.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
