Weird layer view on new cura installation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Weird layer view on new cura installation

Hello there.
So I installed a new cura version on my second PC which is supposed to become my Printer-PC.
But I noticed that the Layer view looks pretty awkward. I don't get a good look of the layer preview which hinders me to print from that PC.
The layer lines are rendered extremely thin, which results in a bad quality of the preview. It's pretty hard to see what exactly gets printed and how the support interact with the object.
Also the simulation bar/play-button for the nozzle simulation is completely missing.

Besides that, I can't change to preview mode to other view settings like "speed" or "layer height". It only tells me "compatibility mode".
I checked the cura general settings and the option to force a compatibility mode is off.


On my first PC the layers view looks normal and what I'm used to.

But compatibility mode is also used if the Open GL version is less than 4.1. Take a log at the cura.log file and you will see what version is being detected. Maybe a driver update is required?
