Cura running two printers at once?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura running two printers at once?

I have a couple questions. Will Cura get confused if I have a second printer connected by USB? Can I use Cura to send print jobs to both printers? Will I have to run two instances of Cura to do that?

While I've never tested it, I suspect you can run two instances at once and one will connect to one printer and the other will connect to the second.

I know it has gained significant traction in the RepRap world beyond UM, but I have yet to personally try it. It should function with any Marlin based firmware though.

Thanks Daid! Also, has anyone used Cura with other printers besides Ultimaker?

Yes, quite a few actually. It works on most if not all RepRap designs if the printer runs Marlin or Sprinter.
