Cura 4.71 - cannot see what I am printing

Posted · Cura 4.71 - cannot see what I am printing

In Cura 4.71 I cannot see the object that I am printing

here is what I see:

https://ibb.co/JmyzNLF

 

The print job is actually printing but in "monitor" view I cannot see the object.

I "preview" view I can see the object.

 

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software but the issue persists.

My printer is Ender 3 Pro.

 

Also, every single object that i tried to print shows "Print setup disabled. G-code cannot be modified."

I do not know if that is normal.

 

thanks for any pointers that you throw in my direction.

    This is normally the case when you load a pre-sliced object (gcode) in Cura. In that case you can only send it to the printer but it cannot be modified. Maybe that is also the reason why you don't see the object.

     

    So try to load an STL file, slice it with you parameters and then check if you see the model.

    Cura is really a bunch of apps that work together.  The Monitor App just sends your print to the printer so you are correct - you can't see your print there and you have to switch back to the Preview App.  (As a note:  Ultimaker doesn't maintain USB printing anymore, it hasn't been updated in a while, and you should probably consider printing from the SD card.)

     

    Smithy's response covers the "Can't Alter" thing.  Under "Extensions" on the menu bar you'll find a link to Thingiverse where there are lots of STL files to slice.
