Cura 4.9 won't send files to right printer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.9 won't send files to right printer

I have two Ultimakers, a UM3 and UM3 Extended. Trying to managing printing to both from Cura 4.9 is riddled with bugs and there seems to be a new one every day.


UM3 = Noah

UM3E = LongBoi


I'm trying to send a file directly to Noah. That printer is active in Cura, but when I print over network it keeps sending files to LongBoi. I've turned everything off and on again multiple times but this keeps happening. Noah says waiting to print, no print jobs, and the file I want to send to it keeps getting queued with LongBoi. Any advice on how to manage a dual UM workflow without grouping them? I have different filaments and settings for each printer, they need to be managed seperately.

    @nallath This is incorrect. I have specifically set up the printers to NOT be in a group, however there seems to be a bug where it thinks it's in a group. I had to ungroup them because it seems the "Select printer" option has been disabled in 4.9.


    For example, look at the below screenshots. Noah (the UM3) is the selected printer. But it's displaying as the UM3E. When I print over network, it gets sent to the UM3E and not the UM3.
