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
