Line Type Preview is unusable on MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019). Lines emanating out from center of preview, like a starburst.

Posted · Line Type Preview is unusable on MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019). Lines emanating out from center of preview, like a starburst.

Using Cura 4.12 on my MBP 16" late 2019 model, Line Type Preview is really unusable, due to extraneous vectors blocking my ability to see what it is I'm trying to preview, such as travels and different line types for extruder 1 vs. extruder 2.

 

Is there some setting I can tweak to bias the graphics capability to be more compatible?
I already tried "Force layer view compatibility mode" but that is so dumbed down I that I cannot see the extruder 1 vs. extruder 2 lines.  😞

    This should be fixed for 4.13.

    This is fixed, at least in Ultimaker dark theme, but I had to switch to Ultimaker (not dark) theme as a workaround for this issue.  It's very inconvenient to have to restart the program to change themes to have the line-type preview work, and also be able to edit post-processing g-code search/replace scripts.

     

    More specifically, it's the travel line-type I can't see in non-dark theme, which is because that line type defaults to  white on white.   I could not see a way to assign my own color to the travel line-type or that might be a suitable workaround for the conflicting issues.

    This does not seem to be fixed in 4.13.1. Tried both dark and default themes. And tried the color assist themes.

    Attached are screenshots of dark theme and default them results.

     

    Installed on:
    MacBook Pro 2019

    Big Sur (11.6)
    32GB Ram
    AMD Radeon Pro 5300 4 GB
    2.6 GHz 6-core Intel i7

      • 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.
