Wireless Printing with Cura and Doodle3D

Recommended Posts

Posted · Wireless Printing with Cura and Doodle3D

I am trying to use Cura to send file directly to Ultimaker 2 via Doodle3D. I read that this function has been implemented, but I cannot see any icon for me to click "send" or "print" on Cura for me to do that. I am using Doodle3D as a stand alone access point. Could anyone please point me to the right direction? Thank you.

If your printed is plugged into the Doodle3D and they are both on the same network, the "print/send to sd" button should be replaced by a "print wireless" button of some sorts.

When you are are running in AP mode, you should make sure you are connected to your AP network. Did you try wifi or cable?

Hi Titus, I am trying with AP mode, and my computer is connected to my AP (Doodle3D) network. I am using wifi, not cable. I was looking for a "print wireless" button, but could not see any.

It's supposed to be there as the middle of the three buttons you normally have. What Cura version and Doodle3D version are you running?

Cura 14.07

Not sure about Doodle3D version, how do I find out?

The middle button is still the "Save" button.

For this to work, you (unfortunately) need to switch the "GCode flavor" from UltiGCode to "RepRap (Marlin/Sprinter)" in the machine settings.

(Whole bunch of technical reasons)

Oh there you go! I missed the Ultimaker 2 part. My UM original runs fine because it's already set to reprap marlin

    • "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.
