Ender3 v2 not printing via USB using Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ender3 v2 not printing via USB using Cura
Hello! I'm having some issues with my printer when trying to print via USB using Ultimaker Cura:
For some reason, the printer does not move once a print has started... The software recognizes that the printer is plugged in and I can move the printer in the x, y and z axes using the controls in the Monitor tab. The print bed and nozzle also heat up with no issues. However, once I begin a print via USB, the printer no longer moves. Even though the bed and nozzle can heat up, and I can move the printer in all three axes before I start a print, nothing moves after a print is actually started. The progress bar for the print continues to climb even though the printer isn't moving and no filament is being extruded. It's as if the software thinks it's printing something but it is definitely not. When I pause the print and try moving the printer again, it will not move in any direction. The only way to get it moving again is to completely shut off the printer and restart the whole process.
Any idea why this is happening and what can be done to fix it? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    I've been printing over USB for about 4 years now (and, just switched to Octoprint... You might want to try that), but one of the first Ryzen motherboards I bought had issues with the USB drivers, and I could not print over USB with that motherboard. I happened to be getting another motherboard, and it had much better drivers, or controllers onboard
