USB Connection while Printer is using SD Card in Native Ulticode

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I seem to see a conflict as others do in the Cura 2.5 UI.

 

  1. You add a Printer (say UM2+)
  2. USB sees the Printer on USB as Green and Healthy
  3. You can't Print as you need to make a change to the Printer settings to use Marlin etc..

 

Understandably the USB port on devices is seldom the same, and the fluctuation of power and connectivity is inconsistent, so printing direct at least for me is not an option. Whereas cloud devices using say an RPI 3 seem to have more trouble in updates and consistency on their own and the code running them like Astro etc. appears not to commercially at least up to scratch. I don't need the cloud; I just need control.

Would perhaps an option to print using the SD Card, but to monitor the Job from Cura via USB and push that out to a WEB on a port running locally, like other application clients, etc. be a viable option???

Naturally my observations and opinions above are personal only.

Juts looking for options in that regard :)

Look in to OctoPrint. AstroPrint is based on OctoPrint, but OctoPrint does not have all the cloud stuff that AstroPrint has
