Cura 5, how to see layers in preview?

Recommended Posts

I can't find the vertical bar that I usually use to navigate the layers in preview mode, there's a bar at the bottom but that seems to only let me preview the top layer

    You may have to move the settings floater a bit to the left; the vertical slider is obscured by your settings.


    I am working on finishing up the Sidebar GUI plugin for Cura 5.0, which from how you have set up your settings bar seems to be what you want. It puts the settings into a "sidebar" like it used to be in Cura before version 4, and moves some UI elements into what I think is a better place (like the vertical slider to the left of the sidebar). A prerelease can be found here:



    On that page, you will see curapackages compatible with different versions of Cura. For Cura 5.0 you will need to download the file ending with `Cura5.0.curapackage`. After downloading that file, drop it onto the 3d viewport in Cura 5.0 as if you were opening a 3d model. You will then be prompted to restart Cura.
