Trying to zoom in Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Trying to zoom in Cura

Ok so i'm new to Cura software and have a problem.

When I try to zoom into a model I cannot centralize the model, no matter what projection I choose I zoom in only to get mu model disappear from view.


As you can see from this screen shot I am trying to add support manually  I have used a mouse , Shift and arrow keys

And it always disappears from view ?

ANY help please 😞 

There needs to be a sliding bar at one side so you can move the page up and down in order to see your model.

when you zoom in, it does zoom BUT drops the image.

    Yeah, the shortcut move command, [T] if I remember correct,  seems to be broken since quite some time.


    Select the model with a left mouse click first and then zoom in/out with mouse wheel. This way the model will stay at center of  the window as long as it is selected.


    With [shift] left/right mouse button you can move the print plate and with right mouse button you can tilt/rotate the print plate

      • 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
