It might have nothing to do with your printer and more to do with your model.
Before saving to a gcode file make sure you look at it in PREVIEW mode. Near the top of the screen there is PREPARE PREVIEW and MONITOR. In PREVIEW mode you can slide up and down the layers to see what the print will look like. Maybe it isn't showing that it will print anything there as well?
It could be your part is too small or walls too thin to print or maybe it isn't manifold.
I have downloaded Cura 4.7.1 which was recommended to use with my new LABISTS et4. I have issues trying to set the printer requirements and the printer profile. It looks as though it has loaded only I the import an stl and slice. Save to the micro sd and go to print. The machine moves from home to a position far right and the print job is complete having done nothing. Is any one else having the same problems.
GregValiant, thanks for the info. I was thinking that's what would have to be done but wasn't sure of the code to insert. I was searching last night for the codes to use and just couldn't find them since there are so many sites that have them but either don't explain what the code is or say it may not work in the software your printer is using.
I have the same issue with 4.7.1 .
I have a 30+ hour print. and the print will run to about 40%, and then all of a sudden it says it is done, head freezes on the part, screen says the print is done and wants me to confirm.
This only happens with the 4.7.1 - 4.6.x never had the issue.
I did notice, this happened on some smaller prints when I had previewed sliced and then exported the gcode.
So far.. wasted about half a spool of pla - but now.. trying 4.6 to get things done.
I appreciate anyone's thoughts or help.
You will have to add it as a custom printer. I couldn't even find what firmware it uses.
In Cura go to Preferences/Configure/Printers/Add a printer / non-networked printer / Custom FFF and on the right side change the name.
In the next dialog enter the build plate size 120 x 120 x 120
Center Origin: NO
Heated bed: Yes
heated volume: No
Keep the firmware at Marlin (it may not be correct but you have to start somewhere).
Don't worry about the settings on the right side at this point.
That should get you started.
Different flavors of firmware take different Gcode commands so you really need to know the exact flavor that the machine runs. Polaroid seems unwilling to tell anyone what it is.
