Is there a way to print directly from the usb connection from computer to printer? I want print without having to use the sd card.

Sorry if this has already been covered a dozen times. Thanks!

    You can do it with any software the same way you do it with other printers. although Ultimaker does not support this way of printing probably to avoid headaches with support.

    BTW, I have observed that after printing with USB cable (for instance, using Printerafce) you should not try to print immediately after from SD because the printer goes crazy trying to hit its head against the walls!!:-(.

    My solution is to put the printer off before trying to print again from SD. Don't know if this is a bug or some sort of funny behavior but it is pretty scary!.
