Thanks for the advice. I will get to that tomorrow.

Am I using the best version of Cura for my system?

    That seemed to allow the computer to connect to the printer. When I ran a print though something was wrong with the settings. It did not seem to be moving at the correct speed. Should I try to manipulate the expert settings? I am using a TAZ 5 and there is no profile for that model, only TAZ and TAZ mini.

    I have run into a very similar issue. I have both a Lulzbot Taz 5 and Ultimaker 2+. The problem is both machines use their own version of Cura but when you donwload one it replaces the other making it impossible to have both the 15.04 for my Ultimaker and 19.12 for the Lulzbot. Does anyone know a solution for this?

    Do you have a mac? I think it works fine if you have a pc - I have like 10 different versions of cura - I didn't do anything special. That's just the way Cura installs on pc. I've heard that for mac people it erases the old install. Don't know why.

    I have often had trouble with the permissions of members of /dev being changed in both Debian and Mint after a single use. This happens far more often with the Arduino IDE than with other software, but it does with the TAZ5. I just got my Ultimaker today, so I can not speak to this device. Some times the port is even deleted. I have no idea why this happens, just know to check and fix with chmod when necessary.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
