32 bit system

Recommended Posts

Posted · 32 bit system

I have a 32 bit computer, I have downloaded the latest version for 32 bit. My question: I have an Ender-3 3D printer I just got and when I go to set up the printer there is no Ender model available, so no printer. Is there an easy fix for this?

Thanks for the help

The latest 32 bit compatible version that was released by Ultimaker is Cura 2.3.1. That version is about 2 years old, so my memory is a bit foggy. You should be able to add your printer as a "Custom FDM Printer" (from the Other category). But realize that a lot has been changed in the past 2 years!

ahoeben, Thank you for the reply. I added the"Custom FDM Printer" but my Ender-3 machine doesn't recognize it, what am I doing wrong? the printer works fine from the sd card, do I unplug the sd card before adding the printer? I am going from my laptop to the printer via USB cable.

Again Thanks for the help.

Cura 2.3 isn't very good at printing over USB to non-Ultimaker printers. It has improved some since two years ago, but it is still problematic for some printers (simply because Ultimaker does not support USB printing anymore). The printer you select from the list of printer models does not influence USB connectivity at all.

 

If you really want to print over USB from a 32 bit Cura, perhaps it is better to use the "legacy" Cura 15.04.

ahoeben, Sounds like it would be less a hassle to do the build on the computer then save to an SD card then insert SD card into the Ender-3 and print from there. Where do I find the download for "Legacy" 15.04

Thanks again
