Cura 14.07 Print with USB :(


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 14.07 Print with USB :(

Hi Daid and fellow Cura users,

I did an upgrade to the new version 14.07 on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit platform.

I'm using a Prusa i2 @ home.

So to print I use the Print with USB option.

Previous version showed up with a nice interface to connect to the printer.

Also taking control over speeds, temperatures, homepositioning, etc. was possible.

Now the only thing I see is as can be seen on:


Any help to print soon is greatfully apreciated ;-)

Need to print during the weekend.

    You might want to continue printing with older Cura. The nice thing about Cura is each version is a completely different application so you can install many versions.

    However you can get a few more features in your print window if you go to "file" "preferences" and choose "pronterface" instead of "basic".

    People are writing better plugins but it may take a while. There are some other interfaces here on the forum somewhere.

    Any help considering installation of different versins of Cura on Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit would be welcome.

    If I download the older .deb file out of http://software.ultimaker.com/?show=all I recieve following message:

    "Er is al een nieuwere versie geïnstalleerd" meaning that there's already a newer version installed :(

    How to git pull an older version of the Cura tree?

    Maybe I'll try the PinkUnicorn if it's available for Linux ;-)

    Removed the new version and installed the 13.11 back in place :(

    So whenever I'll need line support I'll need to update slice save G-code remove version, install older version and print... Changing a parameter and restart the print will be fun.

    Enjoy the weekend :wink:

      • 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
