Printer not recognized on M1 chip


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer not recognized on M1 chip

Hi I'm a complete amateur user. 

I have a CHEAP 3D printer called Goofoo Cube. 

I'm also on a Mac with an M1 chip.

Now, Cura runs, but does not recognize my printer at all (definitions provided by Goofoo) They are saying it's because Cura doesn't fully support the M1 chip yet, based of the M1 issues I've heard, that doesn't seem right.

I think they're just blaming Ultimaker for their faulty hardware.

I would welcome any thoughts.

    USB printing is shaky at best. Since Ultimaker printers dont need USB printing, it's not something we support.


    That being said; The USB printing has nothing to do with the M1. So they are bullshitting about that. There are certain things that don't work correct on the M1 (rendering, etc).

    That being said; We would welcome fixes from them to resolve the USB printing issues.

        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.
