Ultimaker 2+ - Printing from USB Cura - Print nozzle just moves in circles

Recommended Posts

I am trying to "Print with USB" in Cura on my brand new 2+, and after i've prepared the model and started the print, the print head just endlessly moves in a circle and then a zig zag. The print bed doesn't lift up, and no filament is extruded. At first I assumed it was some kind of calibration because it seems to be running through a pattern, but I cancled it after it had done that for 5 minutes or so.

I've read online that printing from USB is not recommended, but this seems like a whole different issue. Can anyone direct me to an answer? Thanks.

    • "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.
