Hi, and welcome to the forums.

I doubt Cura would run on a Raspberry Pi properly (if it starts at all due to the OpenGL version maybe).

Usually the workflow when preparing files for printing is to run the slicer (Cura for example) on a desktop computer and then use the resulting .gcode file to print on a 3d printer.

You could use the Raspberry Pi with something like OctoPrint:

But if you have no experience with 3d printing, I wouldn't recommend it yet.

As for the USB stick - as long as the computer where Cura runs on recognizes the stick, you should be fine.

    • "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.
