How to change default behavior of print button on Cura 13.06

Recommended Posts

i think i found the bug.

in machineCom.py line 30:


while True:
values = _winreg.EnumValue(key, i)
if not forAutoDetect or 'USBSER' in values[0]:

the reg key looks like:


The forAutoDetect is True and 'USBSER' is false. The list remains empty. The detection fails. Removing the "not" in front of forAutoDetect seems to help. but i don't know what side effects it has.

Ah, look, there is the issue. The auto-detection-serial code assumes that you have an USB-serial device. Apparently Melzi electronics is using a different driver.

However, I knew this would happen. There is no real issue here, except that you manually need to configure the proper serial port in the preferences, then the auto-detection checks for that serial port instead of finding an USB-Serial device.

(Note, I have a plan to improve none-Ultimaker support. But I have to do that mostly in my free time. There are a lot of RepRap variations, and the first one I will look at will be the PrintrBot, as I can easy access one)
