USB printing w/ Cura

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just got my first 3d printer, an Ultimaker2, and I'm trying to get it to print through USB from my PC. I can open an stl file in Cura and see it, I can also see it downloaded and an estimated print time, but when I hit the "Print with USB" button nothing happens. It seems that my PC is not communicating with the printer. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Don't use print through usb. It's not officially supported. Yeah you can get it to work with some tinkering, but i've never had a lot of succes with it. Sticking to the SD card is a better option imho.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
