    Just noticed that my OctoPrint (latest version) is no longer showing the gcode properly.

    It shows the moves and retracts fine but the actual drawing bits are just random parts (see screenshots).

    Anyone seen this before or has any idea why?

    Cheers

    I think I may have found the issue - I was using Alex's BigBox Pro Simplify3D profile which uses Relative extrusion distances (G-Code settings). This causes a slight issue with Octoprint in that the order of the commands goes awry (see this thread for more details - https://github.com/foosel/OctoPrint/issues/136).

    The fix I think is to add the following line in to the Starting script after the last G90 call:
    M83 ; Fix for octoprint gcodeviewer display
