Ultimaker 2+ Fails to Print from USB and Networked PC

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I'm new, so please bear with me.

 

We just updated our Ultimaker 2+ with the latest hardware. It prints correctly if you put an SD card in the printer. However, if you print from the PC using Cura (which used to work fine), the extruder head stays all the way raised and to the left rear (that is, it does not drop the the base plate) and starts printing from that raised position.

 

I'm stumped, but then, I'm new. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated!

      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
