I am very new to 3D printing and have been only using Cura 4.11.0 on a Mac running macOS Mojava 10.14.6. for two days.


I would like to enlarge and view the objects, but when I enlarge the screen view to look closer at the object (using the standard two finger scroll on touchpad) I can not then scroll up or down the screen to view the object. The base plate stays at the bottom and disappears off the bottom of the screen and I can only see the top of the the object (unless I have enlarged the screen so much that the object disappears completely off the bottom. (see attached).


Is there a function that will allow this? I can find anything. Most programs have scroll bars an the side and bottom of the screen to allow this, but Cura does not seem too.


I would appreciate any comments or help.

    In Cura "panning" the camera is done by holding the shift key while dragging in the viewport (using the "left mousebutton", or just single finger dragging with the mousepad as if you were moving a model).

      • 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
