Where is the USB plug ?

Recommended Posts

Hi experts, I have just finished my Ultimaker assembly, with Ulticontroller. Now I want to start, but no reaction. Basic settings need to be done via USB cable (??!), which was part of the kit. But where do I connect the cable to the Ultimaker?Thanks for any help.

If you have an Ulticontroller you don't necessarily have to use USB at all, except for firmware updates, although the first run wizard in Cura can help with some basic sanity checks on the hardware.

The square end of the USB cable plugs into the bottom of the right side of the printer, near the power connector and switch. The other end goes into your computer.

thanks, this gives me some hope. Unfortunately I have the third hole near the switch but nothing behind it, just a hole in the side wall. I took the pcb board out but there is nothing on the back side of it.

But if I just want to use the Ulticontroller, I switch the power on and only hear the cooling fan, no reaction, the display remains dark. How to go about it?

Yes, I have no arduino, and in fact I miss more parts. Only I was unable to understand and see this.

But now I was on to sales of Ultimaker and they are of course very helpful and parts are coming.

Waiting is painful....Thanks guys!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
