Opening Cura stopped current print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Opening Cura stopped current print

We just got the Ultimaker 2 and started test prints using the SD card today. While printing, we then installed and opened Cura for the first time, on the computer connected via USB to the Ultimaker itself. Right as Cura opened, the current print stopped and apparently aborted.

What did we do wrong, and how can we avoid this in the future?

    cura tried connecting to your printer and that's why it caused the print to stop. Just remove the USB cable. The only time it should be connected is when doing firmware updates.
