Longer Cube 2 Printer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Longer Cube 2 Printer

I am currently using Cura software for my Lulzbot Taz Pro with no issues.  To keep my children off the Taz Pro printer I have purchased the Longer Cube 2 printer, says compatible with Cura software however when I select "add printer" to cura and go through the list of printers I do not see the Longer Cube 2 printer.  What brand/model printer do I select to use cura software with the longer cube 2 printer?

    I just one for my son for Christmas and ran into the same thing. It even came with Cura on SDcard to use. I think there is a newer version then is available, so I’ll try that and report back. There is also newer firmware, but of course that address this topic.

    Unless you know that some other production printer shares your printer size, firmware flavor, etc, you have to add it as a "Custom FFF" printer.  After adding it and selecting a name, go to Machine Settings and make changes to the bed size, shape, and the other things there.  Very few non-delta printers use Center Zero so make sure that is turned off and you need to select the proper "Gcode Flavor".  If you are unsure of the "flavor" start with Marlin, but you really need to check with the printer manufacturer and find out for sure what firmware the printer runs on.

    The "Print Head Settings" (X Min, Y Min, Gantry height, etc.) don't become involved unless you were to select "One at a time" as a print mode in Cura.

      • 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
