Cura 4.?? connection


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.?? connection

I have a Windows 10 laptop, trying to connect to a Creality CR10 max, using Cura as the slicer. Cura will not connect to the printer using USB. i can use any other slice to connect to the printer, no problem.


I do not want to remote print with OctoPrint or any other remote printing software!!! I want to directly connect with the Cura slicer. when i slice a file, it only give the option to save to file, I DO NOT WANT TO SAVE TO "SD Card"


there is no port options in Cura 4.8

my port in windows is setup as COM4=115200

    The USB Printing option in Cura is un-maintained (Ultimaker printers don't use it anymore).  Connection is supposed to be automatic so there are no options to pick a port, or a baud rate.


    Check in the Cura Marketplace under Installed and scroll down to "USB Printing" and make sure it's installed and checked.

    When you are sure it's installed and active...

    Turn off the printer.  Close Cura.  Disconnect the USB cable.

    Start the printer, let it finish booting, and re-connect the cable.  The printer should re-boot when it sees the 5 volt signal on the USB cable.

    Make sure no other running software is accessing the port.  The only thing connected via USB should be the printer.

    Start Cura.

    Go to the Cura Monitor tab.  Sometimes it takes a minute or two for the connection as Cura cycles through the available ports and tries different baud rates until there is a response that Cura understands.

    That all works fine with my Ender 3 Pro.
