Cura and OpenGL


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura and OpenGL

I am running Cura 4.6 on an older Sony laptop under Windows 10 Home.  Cura runs well but I don't have the "Simulation" option.  After poking around it seems that the simulator requires OpenGL on the video system.  This video system is Intel HD 4000 which (it is alleged) supports OpenGL 4.  Visits to the Intel and Sony sites haven't turned up anything.  I did update the video drivers from the Intel site.  Looking at the Cura install folder there is no mention of OpenGL32.dll.  I was wondering if it should be there.  I haven't really needed the simulator but another tool to play with couldn't hurt.

My question is can I get the OpenGL driver somewhere?

    Rule #2 - "Never upgrade an operating system".


    I have had several mind numbing experiences trying to do that.  The word "drivers" should be 4 letters.  I don't particularly want to run up another learning mountain either but thanks for the suggestion.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
