How do you access the terminal in Cura 4.7.1?

Posted · How do you access the terminal in Cura 4.7.1?

I want to send g/m codes to my printer (Ender 5 Pro) from Cura 4.7.1.  I know earlier versions of Cura had a simple terminal that would allow you to do this.  I'm assuming this is still available.  If so, how do you access it?  Thanks.

    This is my short answer.  I have a full featured app as well.  It's for Windows only, and it isn't a "signed" app so if you install it you will probably have to fool your anti-virus into allowing it to install.  The only instructions are a readme file.  The main window looks like this.  You can see the computer responses in the text box and there is a box for sending commands.  There is a post-processor for adding cooling profiles, and utilities to run Auto-Tune for PID and to help calibrate E-steps.  I wrote the app for my Ender 3 Pro and it should work with any printer but Creality machines for sure.

    Why wouldn't Ultimaker just add a terminal.  Pronterface is an antiquity.

    The long and short of it is that Ultimaker, who pay the devs that make Cura, has no printers anymore that support printing over USB, so there is no incentive to put any development effort into the USB Printing support.

      • 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
