Two printers in Cura using USB.

Recommended Posts

I have an issue with connection two printers to Cura 2.6.1.

The one printer (Printer A) is connected to USB (COM3), the other one (Printer B) is also connected to USB (COM4).

However, Cura can only connect to one printer at the time.

Both printers works separate on Cura but Cura will always select COM3 first, and I cannot change it.

On the old version of Cura 15.04.6 works fine and I can specify one COM to each printer, but it is not possible in Cura 2.6.1.

Are there anything I can do?

Maybe change something in a config file or do I have to stay on the old Cura?

Thanks

Same question as posted 7 months ago.

This was working long ago, but still not working in current (3.2) version.  Seems a shame to loose such a handy feature. Clearly its not about the engine failing to be threadsafe because it used to work and @Ambassador says its just a matter of bringing back manual selection in the UI again.  I'd love to be able to run my Prusa i3 and my CR-10s5 in the same software at the same time instead of deciding which job needs to run on Cura and which on S3D

    • "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.
