Cura Lulzbot edition lag?

Look here for custom firmware, networked 3D printer hosts like OctoPrint, and more!

Cura two operates a little differently. Have you gone to the upper right corner, select "print monitor" than press the connect button? Be sure to have the proper printer selected before trying to connect.
Hello - coming back to this after some time - I just installed Cura 2.6.21 from the beta download on the Lulzbot site. I'm still unable to connect to my printer. I'm wondering if I can trash some preferences somewhere, because when I launch any new version, it still sees the old printers I've created. Again I'm on Taz6, OSX Sierra, and I am unable to have my printer connect to the new version of Cura. Any ideas I can try? Should I uninstall the old (21.03) version of Cura? Are there preferences or additional install files for the new Cura versions? I don't understand how it's finding my previously created printers because I keep throwing the app away when it doesn't work.

Try this version: Cura 2 Beta 2.6.38.dmg.

The beta links at LulzBot.com/Cura now point to 2.6.38.

Hi Brent - still struggling with new builds of Cura, I'm currently on 2.6.38. I am finally able to get the print Monitor window, but cannot control the printer. I'm on Mac 10.12.6. It keeps giving e the "firmware" offer. If I say cancel, it just does nothing. I finally told it "automatic update", and it still did nothing although my printer is now different. Any ideas?
PS I got it to work (got at least to the print monitor) by starting fresh on a different laptop.

Just updating this thread, finally got the latest (2.6.39) to work on my taz6. I also discovered Cura puts files all over the place, and that was part of why I couldn't get it to work (because I was not really starting fresh every time I tried another Cura version). Had to trash those prefs, app support, etc.

Sorry I doubled up there Brent, I thought one of my posts hadn't gone up.

I recently installed a new RAMBo on my taz 5 and was told to use the cura lulzbot edition firmware. Once I did my SD card will no longer be recognized and when I home all it starts to shake and make a loud noise then eventually starts to print. Support told me to install the firmware again but it still does the same thing. You guys have any ideas?
