-===== 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)"​.
