@nallath - Would setting Preferences / Configure Cura / General / Viewport Behavior / "Force Layer View Compatibility Mode" be of any help?

My laptop doesn't support OpenGL 4.1.  In the "Line Type" box it always tells me I'm in Compatibility Mode.  (I use AHoeben's GUI plugin so it might in a different location in the stock GUI.)

    Well, if it cna't run opengl 4.1 it automatically sets it to be in compatibility mode. The preference item just enables you to force the behavior.

     Do you have the steps on that it would be really helpful

    I've never had to do that, so i dont know of a set of instructions that would work. So i would just google something and give that to you.

    @Darksiderxxz It has been a while, but I seem to recall that NVidia had a utilities app that would be installed with their video card.  In that app along with setting the screen resolution you could choose which installed programs would use the video card, and which would use the on-board GPU.

      • 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
