Cura 3.5.1 Print Via USB Not Working

Recommended Posts

I just updated to Cura 3.5.1 and am unable to print via USB to my Ultimaker 2+


My work recently got the printer and we're still getting the hang of things.  We have yet to print via USB, so the specific version of Cura may not be the issue here.


Whenever I slice and prepare the model and then try to print via USB, the print head traces the xy paths, but the build plate does not move, no material is extruded, and the paths are traced near the home position of the print head, not over the center of the build plate.  I've looked through everything that I can find within Cura itself and Googling hasn't been helpful for me.


Any thoughts or suggestions?

    • "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.
