print form usb gone?

Recommended Posts

Posted · print form usb gone?

Hello all!

Ive looked thru the forums and havent found anything on this issue specific to mine, so I apologize if this has been asked.
Ive used the print from usb on cura before, and now its not showing up. Only save to files. Am I missing something? I have a creality cr10s pro, and every time I change the usb cord to a different port, it connects to the printer. So I dot think its a connectivity issue. 
Thanks in advance for helping a very frustrated newbie out that cant seem to find an answer online yet.

    Unfortunately I don't have a solution for this problem, but printing via USB is not maintained anymore by Ultimaker because it is not used (for a long time) for UM printers. Besides that it is generally not recommended to print via USB, better use the SD card which is more reliable.

    If you go to the MarketPlace and check under "Installed" then USB Printing should be down the list.  Make sure the box is ticked.

    If it isn't there you could install an earlier version of Cura that includes USB printing.  As Smithy says, it isn't used or recommended for Ultimaker machines and hasn't been maintained or updated.  Pronterface/Printrun is an option as is Octoprint/Raspberrry Pi.

    For me, the SD card is simple and easy to understand.
