Problem with layerview when primetower enabled


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with layerview when primetower enabled

So every time I need a primetower (because I am printing with PVA as support material) I cant see all of the layers in detail.
When in preview mode and go through the layers it stops at the height were the prime tower is.

As you can see in the second picture(problem view 1) the detailed layer view wont go lower then the top layer of the support / the height of the prime tower.
In the first picture (Full view) you can see the view settings, part, support and travel movements.

In the last picture(Problem view 2 clear) I disabled the travel and helpers view to get a better shot.

 

Does anyone have a solution for this?
I can stil fully use Cura, I just want to be able to view all the layer.

    I think the post is approved. I can see it, so pretty sure others can as well. Som times it just takes time to get an answer. especially if it's a weird bug not seen before. (three days is not that long)

     

    I would like to give you an answer to the problem, but i have no idea why it dos as it do.

     

    Is it the same if you change som setting on the tower. eg.
    * Tower Size
    * Minimum Volume

     

    ps. what Cura version are you on, Mac or Pc?

    When I posted the comment there was still a message in the screen saying it needs to be approved but its gone now so that is nice.

    I changed some setting on the tower and the problem only goes away when I disable the tower(or set size 0).

    I added a picture where you can see that I can see all of the layer when there is no tower.
    The travel is just there to change the nozzle.

     

    Do you also know why I can't change the 'color scheme' (top left of the pic) to lets say layer height so I can see what the settings on adaptive layer option does?

     

    I am on PC

    The message was displayed because you didn't have 2 approved postings yet. With a new user account the first two postings have to be approved manually, only after that you can post directly without this process.

     

    We check the approval queue regularly, sometimes it can take 2-3 hours to approve messages, but it never takes 3 days. But as I said, the message came for another reason, your first posting was already approved at that time and visible to everyone else.

    The layerview is in compatibility mode. This could be because you have forced Compatibility mode on, should be off / unchecked. or your graphics card doesn't support OpenGl

    It can also be because your graphics card doesn't support OpenGL

    Its unchecked.
    so it would be the graphics card then. Cura is running on a laptop at work so I cant really do much about the components.

    But thanks for the suggestion.
