Ubuntu 14.04 (also 12.04), slic3r 1.1.7 and 1.2 experimental (and also earlier versions) on a sandybridge machine with Intel graphics.

The 3d plater and the object settings 3d preview show the objects as being transparent (other 3d applications such as openscad / blender etc work fine):



Yeah, same here on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit:

The printbed grid is not successfully placed behind the objects.. And somehow the whole Objects seem to be "inverted" so you can see through them..


It's a Z-index bug. Not seeing it on Mac, but knowing what it looks like when you rotate the display to show the bottom (from below the platform) should help in tracking down the error.
