Play button not show in preview mode + bad preview display

Recommended Posts

Posted · Play button not show in preview mode + bad preview display


Im running Cura 4.8 on a windows 7 computer and I found an issue with preview page.

I can't see the ''play bar'' when slicing and the displaying quality of the object look pretty bad.

I've try to update graphic card drivers & reset preferences of Cura to default, without sucess.


I've try on a W10 more recent computer and it looks ok, but this is actually not the one I want to use...


I'm french BTW so sorry for my english, and thanks for your help.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I have reset preferences to default and it didn't solve the issue, so based on your comment in the other topic, I expect it come from the drivers. 

    Do you have a suggestion how to check / Solve this ? I'm not very sure to know how to do it...


    thanks again

    Well, you don't mention the model of your graphics card or the driver version, that makes it a bit hard... 🤷‍♂️


    As you already know a graphics card with support for OpenGL 4.1 is needed for full preview functionality.

    You can start to check the log file, some more details here:
