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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
