Cura not seeing second HDD (where all my models are) in Ubuntu.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura not seeing second HDD (where all my models are) in Ubuntu.

Greetings all. 
I am using Cura under Ubuntu 21.10. I have all my 3d printing related files on a secondary storage HDD in my pc that is accessible to both my Windows partition and Ubuntu. 
Cura has been great to me thus far, but the hiccup of it not being able to open stl files from their true location is a pain. If i want to work with an stl, i have to copy it to the drive Ubuntu is installed on. Not to mention I loath unnecessary redundancies. Is there something Im doing wrong in Cura, or is this more a configuration issue with Ubuntu & Cura? I have the drive setup within Ubuntu to be automounted when I boot Ubuntu, so I know the drive is "there" and accessible. I don't believe I am missing something purely on the Ubuntu side that would be causing my woes, hence why I am starting here for help. But, I am not a Linux expert, per se (Not a novice, but know enough to be slightly dangerous, lol).
Any help here would be appreciated.

      • 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
