Why can I not print via USB-Cable with my MacMini M1? I use Cura 4.12.1

 

Printing via USB-Cable with my old MacBookPro and Cura 4.8.0 works fine.

    It could be that a driver is necessary. But since Ultimaker never officially supported USB printing with the Ultimaker 2(+), if Apple is not providing that driver for their new architecture then chances that you will get this to work might be slim.

     

    You could try if you can save the gcode to a file and then print it using Printrun (www.pronterface.com). Or if you want something that is nicely integrated into Cura, you could install OctoPrint (either on your Mac Mini, or on a Raspberry Pi), and print to that with the OctoPrint Connection plugin available from the Marketplace.

    I see from time to time also problems with other USB devices on my Macs when using a USB-C to A adapter. So maybe try another adapter if you have one. But the driver issue can still be a reason as well, as ahoeben mentioned above.

    It would actually be useful to know if Printrun works on your M1. If so, I might dust off my effort to integrate the core of Printrun into a plugin for Cura, replacing the existing non-maintained USB Printing functionality.

    I'ld rather have an answer from someone if *any* application successfully does USB printing. Printrun not working does not necessarily mean the core of printrun is at fault.

      • 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
