Connectivity issues via USB cable to JGAurora A5S

Recommended Posts

Posted · Connectivity issues via USB cable to JGAurora A5S

I have a JGAurora A5S and I am trying to update my firmware. I am using the cable that came with the machine, and it has worked for printing on an older version of Cura Slicer. I have the CH340 driver but it is not being recognized by this version of Cura. Ponterface recognizes it, but they have a Port selection. Can anyone help with this issue? Please and Thank you!!!

    USB Printing is a plugin in the Cura Marketplace.  It should be installed by default.  You can go to the Marketplace and make sure it is enabled.

    It checks for ports every 5 seconds and has an automatic baud rate check.

    That's about all you can do.  If it works it works and if it doesn't it doesn't.


    No Ultimaker printers use USB printing and so the Ultimaker Company won't be putting any time or effort (read that as "money") into USB printing.  It is included with Cura but isn't maintained.  Cura is open source and anyone could pick up the ball and update it.  I think it is significant that no one has.  There are so many different printers and mainboards out there and they update/change constantly.  Maintenance would be a nightmare.


    I don't know Pronterface but can't you use it to send the file?
