    This seems to be all it does, translate STL into Gcode.

    I tried using Cura, but it won't communicate with my printer or it will start briefly and print some garbled wads and stop.

    What settings are you using for Cura? For my monoprice maker, they say to select the Prusa i3 as the type of printer. It sees it and moves the head, but on an actual print, it puts the head into position and then stops, won't go further.

    same Prusa i3, however when I initially installed cura I didnt know what 3d printer to select, as I didnt read the manual with monoprice so I didnt know those step by step instructions until long after I installed cura and I originally set cura up with monoprice maker select , and then after reading the manual for the 3d printer I seen it that it says to use Prusa i3 , so I simply added that printer to the cura setting and now have a drop down menu to select between Prusa i3 and mono price maker select

    And I am not sure or I can’t remember actually if monoprice maker select was one of the printers to choose from or if I selected “other” and then manually typed in Monoprice maker select. I think I might have chosen other and manually added.

    Does it work for you on either setting or only one? And if only one, which one?

    Argh! I can't get Cura to work with my printer either. Downloaded the new version, and still nothing. The new version doesn't even seem to connect. It acts like it is and gives me a message saying it is automatically determining baud rate then hangs.

    Okay, this is really frustrating.. I can NOT get Cura to work with my Monoprice printer at all no matter the version. What am I doing wrong? Are there any particular settings I should use for it?
