Problem with the Gcode flavor. I can't use computer to print object directly.

Recommended Posts

I have bought ultimaker2. When I tried machine setting-Gcode flavor, I could only use Ulticode for the SD card. However, when I tried to use another five options to connect with computer, it could work but the material didn't come out. What happened to ultimaker2 setting? Can somebody share idea about setting for better object? When I use the SD card to print, can I change the setting in TUNE option, like speed?

Thank you!

I am not sure I understand your question correctly, but I am guessing, also based on your title you are trying to connect your Ultimaker 2 to your computer for printing?

You can only connect your Ultimaker 2 to your computer if you want or need to update the firmware, via Cura. You can store your gcode's on the SD card and print everything you need directly from the SD-card. We disabled printing from your computer because printing from your SD card is much faster and more reliable. On your Ultimaker 2 you can change a lot of settings live during printing, like speed, temperature, flowrate, fanspeed etc.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

    • "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.
