Posted · disable cura from connecting to printer on startup

Is there a way to disable cura from connecting to the printer on startup? Cura crashed saving to an SD card, and I restarted it and it reset my printer that had been printing for 8 hours. Not my first failed print, and won't be my last I'm sure. I'd like it to not happen again though :D Is there a way to keep it from trying to connect to the printer? I use a different software to manage the printing so I can still use Cura for my other printers. I guess this hasn't happened sooner because Cura has never crashed before, so thumbs up for that.

Thank you for your time,

webguy

    oh wow, I almost posted a snarky response because I read it as 'remove the usb plug'. :DGlad I caught that one! Thanks Nailath

     

    Lol. Yeah, we should really add a better way to do it some day, but USB printing just isn't important for UM printers.
