    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.
