I got my new Taz 5 7/22/16, but have yet to print anything. In the process of trying to iron out some wrinkles, among them being that the Cura host software on the Taz 5 does not work (i.e., the computer will not connect with the printer, something about Apple security and baud rate) with the latest Mac OS (El Capitan) . Apparently, even Aleph Objects has had to downgrade their Apple OS to Yosemite (the OS before El Capitan came out…Apple is apparently going through a national parks phase after using up every cat name). It’s kind of an ordeal to erase and re-format the hard disc in order to downgrade, including the cost of a back up system if you do not already happen to have one.
So, I’m wondering if changing the printer host might not be an option? I did down download Mac Pronterface from Lulzbot and had the same connectivity issue. My software understanding is limited, and since I’ll be learning something new anyway, have any other encountered this and fixed it with another printer host?
