Cura 14.07 Print with USB :(

Recommended Posts

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:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
