Hello,

 

I'm using an Ender 3 V2 connect to my M1 Mac via Micro-USB cable and then USB-C dock. I have installed the drivers that came with the SD card as well as trying to find the latest ones on the Chip Manufactures Website such as the FTDI one as well as the CH34x Driver although at some parts in the installation it said it couldn't be added to the system extensions due to the developer needing to update something. The printer does pick up though as the serial ports are listed ('/dev/cu.usbserial-110') and I can specify GCODES through an app called 'Serial Tools'. Pronterface is also able to pick up on it as I can specify the usb serial port. Cura although does not have an option to specify the serial port and cannot pickup on it although I think maybe it's trying to pick up on one called '/dev/cu.wlan-debug' which I've seen happen in other programs. 

 

Any help is much appreciated.

Many Thanks.

    The USB printing support is unmaintained by Ultimaker, because no current Ultimaker printers (officially) support printing over USB. So if it works for your printer, it works. If it doesn't you are somewhat on your own. My best advice is that if Pronterface works, slice with Cura and print with Pronterface.

    Thanks for Your reply. I have a windows laptop up now with Octoprint which works fine. Not sure why it wouldn't work with my Mac.

        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.
