When I load a figure in Cura 4.6.1 I get weird dots all over my figure in Prepare-mode.

enter image description here

How come, and can I turn it off?

It's on every model I load :( I am fairly sure the normals are facing the correct way as well.

Solution found!

If Display model errors is disabled, the dots appears. Check the setting, hit OK, click on the box and they disappear.

Check you colour settings. Sometimes the colours are swapped after loading files, for example, after loading a GCODE file, and then an STL, the colours change, so it could be a file type you have loaded has changed the colours around. Also, using the translate tools, check that all the part is in you print area, otherwise it may be greyed out. If not ensure that all parts are in your buildable area, and see if this fixes the problem.

  • $\begingroup$ Main color switches back to yellow when using Generic PLA which I've always been using (switched from eSun PLA+). But the dots are still there. I tried to load a .gcode to see if something would switch, but no. All transformation reset - still the same. $\endgroup$ – Rasmus Bækgaard May 23 at 11:16
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry. I'm currently trying to recreate the problem myself in an attempt to help, and also further my understanding of Cura. I will let you know you when I have a bit more info myself. $\endgroup$ – LukeDunkley May 24 at 2:02
