Cura, Printing over USB, Preheating?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura, Printing over USB, Preheating?

Hi Guys

Newest Cura on a Mac..

I wanted to test the USB connection and stumbled over a nasty Problem. i used SD card most of the time before.

(i can print fine... its just the Manual temp setting that gives me problems)

I got the Print window up front and want to type in the Temperature my Ultimaker should go to.

but instead of accepting that Temperature i entered, it jumps back to 0. every time!

This also not works the other way around.. the UM is hot and i want it to go down to 0. same problem.

The only way i can set the temperature manually is by clicking(about 220 times) those mini buttons next to the temp. field and wait for the numbers to really slowly going up to 220°.

    You need to type REALLY fast. (actually, it's a bug that creeped into 12.10 and 12.11)

    You can switch to the "Term" tab and type M104 S210 there to pre-heat. Is easier then using the buttons. This bug will be fixed in the 12.12 release.
