USB Printing in Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · USB Printing in Cura

Ladies and gents,

Quick one.

Cura only does USB printing via FTDI hardware or I have any chance of getting it to work via CH430/341?!

Thanks.

Kris

Only if someone from the community / another printer company builds it. We (read Ultimaker) aren't going to spend time / resources on it.

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.
