Playing a Preview in CURA 4.9 always starts on the last layer

Posted · Playing a Preview in CURA 4.9 always starts on the last layer


I've just updated from 4.8 to 4.9 and am slicing my first print. I want to check a specific layer but when I slice, preview, move the slider to a specific layer, press 'play' button at the bottom it always starts at the very last layer (the top of the model) not the layer I have changed to. I used this process regularly in 4.8. 


See picture below - I am trying to check layer 26, which is where the model changes from light grey to dark grey, but the model is printing from the top (the coloured layer).




Any ideas?

    Hi @adyj1 it looks like you want to check layer 26 with the slider from below. If use the the upper dot and slide it down, it should work!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
