When ever I go into the preview window and hit the play button the see the preview of what the printer will do. It only shows how the final layer of the print will be printed and nothing else.

    There should be a slider bar on the RHS that lets you adjust the visable layer from top to bottom.SlicerProbsII.thumb.png.8671cf43c5f2a9f5e9ce1faa72e2f784.png

    I already have the slider set so all layers should be visible and only printing the top layer.

    As far as I know there is no animation of the tool-chain in CURA 4.6. If you are aware of this feature then please let me know how you invoke it.

    The play button (purple in above screen capture) is used to start\restart the slicer, the results of which are displayed when it completes . Changes to the top layers and 5 detailed layers (grey) can effect what is shown and the slider (black) lets you move up and down in the model layer to show the detail around the chosen level.

    If you are saying that the resultant gcode, when run, only prints the top layer then you also have me stumped.

    Hope this helps

    There is, but not on your computer. Your "Color scheme" panel indicates that the layer view is in "Compatibility mode". This means some functionality in Cura is missing because your GPU does not support a feature that Cura wants to use. If the layer view were not in compatibility mode, there would also be a horizontal slider, like the vertical one. That horizontal slider would have a "play" button of its own.

    Looks like it's time to upgrade my PC or at least buy a better video card! 😳

    Is there a way to deselect "Compatibility mode" and run full feature all be it a bit slower?

    Hi Kevin,

    if I understand you right, the slider is in the top position when you press the play button.

    Pull the slider down to show the 1st (lowest) layer and press the play button. Then it should show how this first layer will be printed, and at the end, jump to the 2nd layer and so on.

    The printing preview always uses the upper selected layer.

    Regards
