Simply log in to Ultimaker Cura to load your personal account settings and associated printers, including the Ultimaker 2+ Connect.
Cloud printing with the Ultimaker 2+ Connect
Cloud printing is the only form of network printing available for the Ultimaker 2+ Connect. To begin, first go to digitalfactory.ultimaker.com and add your printer to your account. You will need to have created an Ultimaker Account in order to do this.
With your printer associated with your personal Digital Factory, open Ultimaker Cura and sign in with your Ultimaker Account. Ultimaker Cura will alert you of any printers connected to your Digital Factory, and you can easily select the printer.
Note: Ultimaker Cura will not be able to detect an Ultimaker 2+ Connect that is connected to the same local network. It can only detect cloud-connected Ultimaker 2+ Connect printers.
USB printing with the Ultimaker 2+ Connect
The Ultimaker 2+ Connect can print using an offline workflow using a USB drive. Simply save a sliced print job that has been configured using Ultimaker Cura with your desired settings and material configuration. The USB print job can be read and started by using the touchscreen of the printer.
