    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
