Other Printers in Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Other Printers in Cura

Hello guys.


I am just curious to if you can directly print 3rd party printers with Cura.


I do know that Dremel is supported with the plugin to get the specific extension file saved in sd card, but can you print through USB connection, Wifi or Ethernet connected Dremel 3D45 in Cura?


Or can you use like Makerbot, Lulzbot, Raise 3D or Leapfrog?


Just Curious.

    It should work, depending on how "weird" your printer is. The better it adheres to the standards, the easier it is to get it to work. Most printers that accept marlin g-code should work without any issues (at least no issues on the slicing side).

    A lot of printer definitions (To have some sane defaults, profiles, build plate sizes, build plate models, etc) have been added by the community already. We don't guarantee that those will work, but they should at the very least provide a good starting point.

      • 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
