for reasons I don't understand, when I connect via usb my printer connects and disconnects constantly. I can't seem to find why this is.

any one know the answer?

I am working on improvements for USB printing, but that work will not be finished until Cura 2.7

thank you I appreciate it. using Simplify3D allows me a lot of control, monitoring and faster adjustment.

It did used to work fine but I think an update with windows has caused an issue with USB control and I can't identify it. It's as if its using the driver to reboot the printer for something that it thinks it needs to identify it in order to connect but if i click connect a number of times during the reboot it connects and all is fine again.

I my concern is that the constant rebooting will affect the service life of the printer.

it also allows me to level the build plate more effectively when I change nozzles without having to go through the Printer's process.

Many thanks

Becky

    • "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.
