-===== Select Mini Not Connecting ​=====+===== Fix Connection Failed Message ===== 
 + 
 +Do you keep getting the "​Connection failed"​ message when try to connect your Select Mini V2 via USB even though the printer is detected by S3D. 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +"​Attempting connection at \\.\COM5... 
 +   ​Testing plaintext communication protocol... 
 +   ​Testing binary communication protocol... 
 +   ​Testing alternate communication protocols... 
 +   ​Connection failed."​ 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +This may help with that. Simplify3D needs a small change made to the "Flow Control"​ setting located in the "​Advanced"​ section of the "​Communications"​ tab which can be found in the "​Firmware Configuration"​ settings. The "Flow Control"​ drop-down has three options: 
 +  * No Flow Control 
 +  * Hardware Flow Control (RTS/CTS) 
 +  * Software Flow Control (XON/​XOFF) 
 + 
 +Choosing either the hardware or software options seems to work.  
 +The only difference made in the S3D firmware profile is to the "Flow Control"​ setting which is set to "​Hardware Flow Control (RTS/​CTS)"​.
