I can see that the search "support mesh" exist under "Support" and "Special Modes" (they are not just collapsed).


In preferences, I can find

"Drop Down Support Mesh" under "Support" and

"Support Mesh" under "Special Modes". They should both be visible, but they are not.



I do not understand this message:


I can not change the value of "Support Mesh", as this setting is also hidden - without possibility of making it visible. Any idea of what is happening?

    These settings are meant to be used with the "Per model settings" tool. They would have no function in the Print settings list, which is why you cannot make them visible there. The "support mesh" setting automatically gets set for settings you mark the be printed as support.

    Ok thanks - it makes sense now.

    Only thing that is strange and unintuitive is that you can search for them in the print settings list, only to find the category they belong under. I guess that it is also strange that they can be set to visible in the settings, without any explanation why they will not be visible.

    In regards to my previous post that I cannot edit:

    'I'm having a similar issue, except special modes is completely disabled for me.

    I've only one extruder and am not using a ultimaker.'


    I found clicking the gear next to mesh fixes loaded the settings window and now allows me to enable special modes.

    Definitely not intuitive.

    Good afternoon,


    How can i show all the settings visible? I want to have all the options that i have with my ender 3 pro.


    The geeetech A10M and is completely equal to the ender3, except for the dual motor extruder.


    I don't want to start changing the number of extruders, is has no sense for me, not with this printer


    Thank you so much in advance.

    Sorry - you can't have it both ways.  You can't show all the settings but at the same time not show all the settings.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
