Hello everyone~

Can I 3D print with cura on UM2 ?

I mean if I can control UM2 for 3D printing with cura directly though usb just like pronterface, not from SD card

I think it's possible (don't know how) but not recommended because of the amount of data that has to go through the usb it often results in problems.

Thank Didier and Dim3nsineer for quick answer~

However, I think it amazing if we can control a 3D printer with a friendly user interface like fronterface.

Also I think it convenient to solve some issues by moving XYZ axis a little, preheating, changing temperature, extruding though pronterface. But we can only print with cura... :-|

And I think it great if wifi function can be integrated in 3D printer :-P

You can use Pronterface to do those things you describe.
