Printing Issure

Recommended Posts

Just got myself a 3D printer over the holidays. Installed Cura. Program seems awesome but for some reason when the print button is not at the top for me to print. Instead it just wants me to save the file I am working on. I have my printer hooked up to my laptop. Not sure what do to. I have looked into the manual but there is not any troubleshooting section on this. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Hi, Apple_Jax,

What model printer do you have? USB printing isn't supported for most models of Ultimaker printers. The Ultimaker 2 series machines are all intended to print via the SD card; the Ultimaker 3 series can print via the USB stick, or print in Cura over wifi.

Also, what version of Cura are you printing with?

    • "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.
