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.

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
