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.

      • 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
