Hey there guys,

i am using Cura for the Prusa Mendel i3, however it is not printing. I know i am really no expert at 3d printing but this is the problem:

i load a .STL file in cura. After that i scale it, and rotate it. This is all no problem, however when i push the print button, in only saves the toolpath instead of starting to print. Can anyone give me some advice on this? The manual states that it should give a printing screen with the connected printer, sadly it does not...

thank you for replying!

Thijs

    I haven't done this in a few years but try right clicking the "print" button. This feature may have been removed from Cura but I don't think so - it's just hidden slightly I think.

    You can certainly use other free (and better) software to print such as repetier host or pronterface.

    right clicking the print button does nothing, sadly. I will however try the other software.

    Thanks

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
