cura always losing connection to printer

Posted · cura always losing connection to printer

Every time my laptop goes to sleep, Cura loses awareness of the printer. I have to go to printer management, refresh the network, and re-connect the printer. This did not happen in Cura 3.0. It seems to be a special "feature" of Cura 4.0. Anybody else experiencing this? I should say that the printer is connected to a router through Ethernet cable, not Wifi. Again, the problem arose only with Version 4.0

    I am finding this issue as well. In Cura 4 I have to go to Preferences / Printers / "Connect via Network" every time. If I close Cura, I have to do it again each time. This does not occur in Cura 3.

    Same issues, Printer is an Ender 3 V1.1.5 Metzli board and annoyingly connects fine one minute and doesn't the next, so end up having to transfer the sliced profile to SD card or Octoprint and print that tried different usb cables before that is suggested. The Raspberry Pi running Octoprint never seems to have a problem connecting with the printer. Would love to know what the solution is please.

    Just started having this issue again. My computer did a firmware upgrade and cura went to 4.9.1.

     

    What a pain. I just want it to work.

    It's been 4 years and this is still happening. I can't believe Ultimaker is incapable of fixing this - how unprofessional

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
