Cura 2.3 Wont Print

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My Printrbot Simple Metal connects just fine to my computer and other software but when I try to print something off Cura 2.3 it doesn't see the printer.

Here is a screenshot:


Any help would be great. Also in the old Cura (v15) I didn't like how you could move the axis. I would still like this feature, but a better more clean/modern UI with the ability to control print speed as a print is printing.

@nallath did comment the lack of USB printing interface here:



... a better usb printing interface won't be built by us. I've tried to get in contact with PrinterBot if they wanted to help adding features for their machines in Cura, but they declined.

Aleph objects (lulzbot) is working on improving the USB printing, but they obviously will focus on their machines, so this is no guarantee that it will work for printrbot.

If anyone feels like improving this, i'm willing to give them pointers / answer questions on where to start.


What you as a printrbot user should do is to push Printrbot to help out (i.e hire a developer) that helps the Cura team out with that part, since it is not a focus for Ultimaker.
