"Send job to printer" fail

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · "Send job to printer" fail

how come i see this message at least twice a day now? the only way around it is to save the file, close Cura, reopen it, slice it again and then attempt to print again which at that point it usually goes through. Rolled back to Cura 5.0 to try it out but still the same. It just hangs at "Sending Print job" forever and there is no option to retry or cancel it, you have no idea how frustrating that is after you have sliced a complex file that takes a lot of time only to have it hang and you have to close and re-slice again.

    I found this can happen to me with the following things:


    -Special characters within the print job name

    -Multiple instances of cura open (make sure it's only one)

    -Log out your account from cura and log in again

    -I had multiple print job upload errors with the 5.2 beta (5.1 and 5.0 were fine)

    -When printing over the cloud, make sure the printer has the little cloud symbol active. Sometimes it can bug out yet its visible in the factory. A resets and reconnect to the cloud can help.
