CURA with a TAZ4


Recommended Posts

Posted · CURA with a TAZ4

I noticed that CURA has support for a TAZ4 printer (from Lulzbot). My question is, will it still function the same in that you have to transfer and load files from the SD card, or can the TAZ be run connected to the computer through USB like it does when using pronterface and slic3r?

I have an UM2 and I know I can't run that through USB, so I'm just wondering if that's the same for all others.

    I'm fine running the UM2 from SD card, it means it doesn't need to sit near the computer and I can put it some place else. But I prefer using the Cura software versus the multi-step process for the TAZ4 (load in slic3r first, then load that in pronterface before you can print.) I like the Cura setup much better. So that's why I'm asking.
