Cura cant find the printer Hephestos

Recommended Posts

Hi Community,

I hope its okay if I ask why my Cura cant find my Hephestos i3. I reinstalled my Windows so I had to reinstall Cura aswell. I remembered that I had the same problem before. It doesnt auto detect my printer. I think I fixed it last time by installing and old cura version and chosing the printer manually (but im not sure if that was the fix), but this isnt optimal since I would like to try the newer versions. Do you guys know how I could fix it? Windows recognizes the printer as a device but cura doesnt seem to connect, because when I try to update the printers software it gives me the info it isnt connected to a printer.

Edit: I tried everything like reinstalling, connecting with USB before and after starting and restarting the pc

Edit2: Installed Cura 15.04.6 and changed manually the serial port from automatic to com3 and it found it. But I would still like to have the newer version working.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
