How to connect printer to Cura 2.4

Recommended Posts

I don't think cura 2.X supports this anymore.  I recommend using pronterface for usb printing.  I believe Cura is now just a slicer.

Oh far from it. But we don't really support USB slicing. It's possible to get it to work, but it will probably need some attention from a software engineer to get it to work. But as I've mentioned quite a few times already; you can't expect Ultimaker to fix things for other 3D printers.

Simple solution, which I have used for 3 years, is to download Repetier Host (free), which has solid USB connection and some good functions, to run your printer. Load your Cura sliced .stl file into RH and away you go. I am not at all sure on where you go with firmware as my printer came pre-loaded with RH firmware

    • "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.
