Posted · not allowing me to add printers

I am trying to add a new printer in cura. when I go to add a printer it only shows me the printers I already have. see the screen shot below. I deleted and reinstalled cura. still the same. I was trying to go back to 5 and try that but I cant find it. I am on a mac as well and running 5.2.1 of cura. 180732547_Screenshot2022-12-02at5_10_12PM.thumb.png.31bf146b3d5d1d8a674d4865840ab1ae.png

    Do you happen to have the plugin "Startup Optimizer" enabled in the MarketPlace?  It simplifies the loading of Cura (to speed it up) and I believe one of the things it does is cleanup the number of printers available.  If it is enabled then disable it and restart Cura and the printers should show up.

    It is better to use the "Extensions -> Start optimsier -> Restore all configuration files" option before disabling the plugin. Otherwise, if you at some point re-enable the plugin, your new printer configuration may break (because its definitions and profiles are once again not loaded).

    Only when you tell it to though...

      • 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
