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.
