Cura cant find the printer Hephestos


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura cant find the printer Hephestos

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.
