My monoprice i3 always seems to have issues connecting to my PC.. infact 1/10 times i get it to connect in simplify 3d. I've never been able to get it to connect in Cura.

Is there an option to see the com port it's trying to connect to in Cura?

    No there is not, there already are a few threads on this topic, it all comes down to that these features are not needed by Ultimaker since USB printing is not supported and very rarely used (and Ultimakers are auto-detected, so they need no com port configuration)

    This makes it a non-priority of the Cura team at Ultimaker, and combined with the fact that Wanhao (the manufacturer of the Monoprice i3) and some of the other manufacturers (for example Printrbot) that use Cura as a slicer does not seem interested in supporting the Cura development at all...

    If someone develops a nice USB printing interface for Cura 2.x, i am sure that the Cura team would considerate putting it in the main release, but as long as that does not happen, there will be no USB printing support in Cura 2.
