Hi welcome to the forum.

You can print using usb with the UM2 it's not officially supported, and it's not recommended either but you can.

Risk: loose some gcode data because of USB latency and fail prints.

Printing via SD card is very usefull and you can monitor/tune the settings on the printer.
