Printing from Cura

Posted · Printing from Cura

It seems there are issues not addressed in latest updates, such one of them would be when one connects a printer to cura, and wants to print to it, the streaming to the printers microsd, this is so slow, one can start maybe in night and end by early day 🙂 ...

    Yes, using the M28 command is extremely slow to the point of being useless.  It isn't a Cura problem though.  All printer/software combinations have the same problem.  I wrote my own program to write to the SD but it wasn't any better.  The printer mainboards aren't very capable when writing to the SD card.

    Printing from Cura over the USB isn't too good either as buffer under-runs and over-runs can occur and there are other problems as well.  If you want to print remotely then I guess the Octoprint/RaspberryPI combination is the best solution.

      • 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.
