Cura 14.01 layer preview bug


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 14.01 layer preview bug

Not too sure if this is a bug but When I previewed layers in Cura version 12 the image moved off the build plate and displayed in the lower left corner, In version 13 the layer did not move from the center of the build plate and just showed the layers...Great! Now in version 14 it is back in the lower left corner again. Not a problem if I could slide the image over but all I can do is get it to rotate and zoom around center. Am I doing something wrong, and is there a way to slide the image around on the screen. I have attached a couple of screen grabs to show what I mean.Thanks

    What kind of printer is this? You have it configured for center to be at "0,0" in machine settings. I assume you don't have an ultimaker because the ultimaker center is at 100,100 (roughly).

    This is a bug in layer view. I don't know what the workaround is. I suppose you could lie and uncheck the 0,0 box in machine settings, look at it in layer view until you are happy, then check the box again and DON'T LOOK at layer view. :)

    Same problem here.

    Tried to use Cura to add brims to my object in order to prevent warping on an Makerbot Replicator 2x. After added the printer from the machine settings menu, the layers preview moves the object outside the platform. Playing with the settings I found out that the object goes back to the center of the platform when you change the GCode Flavor to UltiGCode. So it seems that Cura has the Makerbot Flavor wrong. Tried to use UltiGCode but it confuses my Makerbot. Any solution to this?

    It should slice the object fine and print it fine, it just displays it wrong. This is a known bug and will hopefully get fixed soon. So uncheck the "center at (0,0)" setting so you can look at it in layer view and then if it looks good, check the box again and the resulting gcode should be fine.

      • 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
