Prime Tower with Cura 4.0

Post by abp666 » Fri Apr 19, 2019 10:54 pm

Using Cura 4.0 (with A20M files incorporated). Prime Tower is enabled but it only shows up on the Cura build plate as a shadow. I suspect I'm overlooking something obvious to activate it.

1, Could you please show us a pic for it?
2, Has the model two different colours or only one colour?

screenshot attached...model shows two colors. The prime tower is shown in shadow and appears round even though I haven't selected that option.

Appreciate your help...

I think you need to click"Slice"
Click"Preview"then you will find the prime tower is in there.

I've already sliced it and no prime tower when I tried to print.

When I use preview in layer view the lizard becomes a shadow (along with the prime tower). In X-ray view the lizard is in two (differnt) colors and the prime tower is still in shadow.

You can try to set the correct Prime tower position(X/Y).
If this part out of the hotbed then it won't show normal. :?
