How to stop USB plugin grabbing printer?

So, I want to use Cura to slice but I want to use another application (e.g. S3D, pronterface, etc.) to actually print. How do I stop Cura grabbing the printer it sees on /dev/ACM0? Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply.

    OK, bit of a pain though as I have to remove it every time I update Cura. Would be somewhat nicer to have a preference that simply disables the plugin.

    Sniff. You did got a bit ahead of what I wanted to build. I think a "Don't automatically connet to USB" preference would be better for this case.

    Yes, that would be useful to have too.

    I've been waiting for Alephobjects to create a PR of their usb rework, but I might go ahead and implement my own proposal for 2.6:

    I just bricked my printer because Cura was active and I tried to program it with new firmware this is really a bad decision. I use octoprint. It must at least have an option to swicth it off, like auto auto prepare.

    Go to the Toolbox, see the Installed tab and find the USB Printing plugin. Disable it and restart.

    On Linux I could not find this option, now-where, please guide us to do it from the main menu, or if you downloaded the Linus image, where is the plugin directory to remove the USB plugin, I just cannot find it, and this is driving me crazy, Marlin aborts the current print and just resets. There must be a better way to solve this, have a tab to enable this option when needed !. I just aborted a 12 hour print after 9 hours .. , by accident, the main reason why I checked this 'question' again.

    The Toolbox changed name to Marketplace.

     

    Go to the Marketplace, see the Installed tab and find the USB Printing plugin. Disable it and restart.

      • 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
