Com port connection


Recommended Posts

Posted · Com port connection

Is it possible to disable the automatic com port connection in Cura?

An alternative - can I close the port connection from within Cura?

I have my own program I use for printer communication and I have to close Cura to make the port available for my program and then re-start cura and reload the model.  It's a bit annoying.

    Well for 5.2.2 the market place does not reveal installed plugins for 'com' or 'serial'. Seems like it was folded in the the overall distro. There is a new plugin 'USB Printing NG' that is NOT installed on my system.

    I have tried installing it hoping it would override the com port search, but it did not. Release notes indicate to disable original Com plugin but i can't find that setting anywhere.

    All I see in the 5.2.2 MarketPlace under "Plugins" is the "USB Printing NG" version.



      If you click on the "Gear" icon the old version is listed.  They are in alphabetical order so you need to scroll down to it.



    You don't need them then make sure that neither is installed.

      • 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
