Posted · Cura not connecting to Ultimaker but Proterface will

Hello,

I have been having a problem for the past few days with Cura not wanting to connect to my Ultimaker. I have looked on the net and have tried disabling the driver, uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, restarting my computer with the USB cable unplugged and still cant get it to work. The weird thing is that Pronterface will connect just fine and everything works. I know both Pronterface and Cura cant connect at the same time so I fully disconnect and close Pronterface before trying Cura.

Cura has been amazing since I got my printer and I dont understand what has changed. I have tried versions 13.11, 13.10, and 13.06.4.

Any ideas?

Error log is below.

    The obvious answer would be that your printer isn't connected to COM3, but a different port. What port and speed is Pronterface connecting with? You can manually set those in Cura's prefs, so that it doesn't have to autodetect.

      • 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
