COM connection

Recommended Posts

Switched to CURA 2.3.x and there is no connection setting in the menu.

CURA does not know how to choose between COM ports, is there any hidden

switch/toggle to configure it manually?

Pretty much useless without this.

Cura 2 only has autodetect for com-ports and baud rates. This works fine for Ultimaker printers. It may not work for all fdmprinters by other manufacturers, but the developers at Ultimaker don't have access to all fdmprinters by other manufacturers, so they can not fix the issue.

Cura is open source, so the hope is that either these other manufacturers or users of their printers will help fixing Cura to work with these printers.
