USB Printing in Cura

Recommended Posts

Hi If you want to use USB printing then you may want to consider using Repetier Host for your print control. You interface with Cura in one of two ways. Load your model into Repetier Host and press the button to slice using the Cura engine; this slices the model and loads the gcode into Repetier Host, hit the print button.

Alternatively, slice in Cura as per normal, save the gcode to file and then go over to Repetier Host and load the gcode.

I have been using it for the past 3 years.

    • "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.
