Hi, I need some help in connecting Ultimaker Cura 4.4 to Octoprint. I downloaded and installed Ultimaker Cura 4.4, i have been using it since i started 3D Printing ( 4 days ....lol) I got a rasberry pi 3 B+ and octoprint to 3D print on my Ender 3. Now I would like to connect Cura 4.4 to Octoprint, I installed the octoprint connect plugin , after going to managed printers, i can see the tab "connect octoprint", I click on it but on the next page under "select octoprint instances from below" there is nothing, its empty, nothing to select. I have seen a few youtube videos about it but they are all from privious version of cura. I have Ultimaker Cura on my Windows 10 Laptop. Is there a way to do the connection?, I might be doing something wrong, i dont know much about it. Any help will be appreciated .

    Are you sure you have a working network connection from your raspberry? Normally the Octoprint plugin finds running instances of Octoprint. So I would first check if your network setup is correct and the raspberry is connected to the network and got an IP address from your router. You can also check it you can connect to the Octoprint web gui via your browser.


    If this is working and the plugin can still not find your instance, you can always enter the IP address manually in Cura to connect to it.

    Hi Smithy, Thank you for your reply, I was about to call it a night, I did try everything, yeah rasberry had a network connection and had an IP address from router, yeah I was able to connect to the octoprint web gui. But , I think your reply made it work ..... lol. after reading your reply went back and switch on laptop, 3d printer and rasberry pi: everything looked fine, rasberry pi network connected , octoprint on my web browser connected to printer, so i went and open cura to have another go, and Guess what, ....... this time there was an octoprint instance to choose from, so , i think your message made it work ......lol.

    My Ultimaker Cura is connected to Octoprint 🙂 . I have sliced a file and clicked print with octoprint to test, "it's working" printing as i write this message, I guess i'm staying up a little longer 🙂 . Thanks Bud.
