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

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

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?

    Hi Michael,

    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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
