Cura won't connect to my Ultimaker

Posted · Cura won't connect to my Ultimaker

I just installed Cura on my PC. I had been using RepG with my Ultimaker for about a year with no problems. I decided to upgrade to Cura and upgrade to Marlin.

When I run the activation wizard, it can't connect to my Ultimaker. The software runs fine, and lets me set up a model to print, but it can't connect. I've attached an image that has some of my basic driver/pc info.

Please let me know if you need more information to help diagnose my problem.

Thank You,

Dan

    Maybe something else is still "connected" to the serial port, the port needs to be free for Cura to connect. And serial ports in Windows can get into a "limbo" state, where windows thinks an application still is connected to it.

    Try:

    -Disconnecting the USB cable

    -Restarting your computer

    -Start Cura

    -Connect the USB cable

    -Try upgrading the firmware.

    If that fails, could you try pressing the "print" button, that should show a new screen which fails to connect, but it will show a "error log", this error log might help in diagnosing the problem.

    Sorry for the delayed response, I've been under the weather lately. Unfortunately I'm still having trouble connecting to the printer. Below is the error log from a failed print attempt:

    As none of the baudrates seem to respond with anything, it could be that there is an issue with your Arduino or electronics. Try carefully lifting the Arduino from the main PCB and see if it will connect then.

    I'm having the same problems -- (but with the Replicator 2). Serial port connects fine, it chokes on finding a baudrate.

    (Sorry for the invasion but this was the only place I could find somebody asking the same question).

    Get the same error log. Using 12.11.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    i am as new as they come to the Ultimaker. I just assambled one and tried to get it working.

    Now I am stuck with a simple connection problem and can't find a way to fix it.

    I run cura on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    it starts normally and I run the first run wizard. When I try to update the marlin firmware I hear a sound like one of the motors turning(i don't see any movement) and then the process times out.

    If i skip the process and get to the checkup I get a connection error with the following error log:

    Changing monitoring state from 'Offline' to 'Detecting serial port'

    Serial port list: ['/dev/ttyACM0']

    Connecting to: /dev/ttyACM0

    Error while connecting to /dev/ttyACM0: 'Timeout'

    Failed to open serial port (AUTO)

    Changing monitoring state from 'Detecting serial port' to 'Error: Failed to autodetect...'

    I allready set the access rights but still get no connection?

    What else could i try?

    Thanks in advance,

    Taires

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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 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.
