Cura 4.8 and macOS Big Sur — unable to show preview

Hi everyone,

 

Previously, under Cura 4.7 and mac OS Catalina, there was no issue slicing and previewing the print. After upgrading to the official released of Cura 4.8 and mac OS Big Sur, however, I can still slice the model, but there is no play back button to preview the print. Any suggestions to fix?

    The lack of a playback button is caused by Cura reverting to legacy openGL mode. This is either done because a preference forces it back to legacy mode (this is done from within cura, check preferences) or because your drivers tell Cura that opengl 4.1 isn't supported.
