  1. I love your logo (I'm 72 and had 6 years in Latin...) I decided to go similar to your way with the SD-card and will use a long adaptor cable to the front of the printer. Pity is I have my dedicated microPC (180*128*55mm) sitting inside the 3D printer so I was hoping to just use USB for convenience.. If this ARM32 is unable to redirect data to a buffer storage or sd card then that is the only solution. Shame on the Tronxy software engineers. Kick butt... And if the new tack plates will not do the trick (PLA sticks at room temp so I need hammer and chisel /not sickle!) i'`ll
  2. Seems nobody reads this apart from myself. So here is MY answer - the firmware of this printer is crap. Tronxy has implemented a USB (and - at extra cost - even a WIFI) but becaus of too high a transmission rate you cannot control the printer by these means, only just by micro sd cards. And as we all know, these slots fail very soon. I wanted to try the Toshiba FlashAir WIFI (W-03) card, but alas, they are no longer available. These would have been a very good viable solution - wireless data transfer to the printer, and then start the print manually. Would have been perfect. Ju
  3. Thank you for your kind answer. I had the feeling that it had something to do with the USB, because I tried printing the same file to confirm my idea, and it did print perfect, no interruption. My thinking was that it could have been something in connection with my old PC (Compaq dc7600, Win 7) which had seen better days. It has USB-1 only, is slow and noisy like hell, and is going to be replaced by a new microPC in the next days. I'll go another route though - wireless, either with the Toshiba Flash Air WIFI 8GB SD card or, if this does not work, I'll try the the TRONXY proprietar
  4. I have to disagree with some of you. My TRONXY x5SA pro (latest edition 2021) is running quite fine with the provided 'Tronxy' software using SD-cards, but when I want to print with the more refined CURA 4.8.0 and USB the printer starts printing as expected, but stops in midprint after about 2 minutes, and does just heat the nozzle and the print bed, but does nothing more. Printer problem? I do not think so. This looks more to be a software problem as I cannot move the printhead with the jogging keys too. Maybe the problem is in the firmware? I don't know. I am at a loss. Can anybody
  5. My Printer is a TronXY X5SA PRO with the 330x330x400mm volume. The TronXY-slicer (which is said to be an offshoot of CURA) has no option for online print via USB - at least I could not find it. And using these small micro SD-Cards does function but is a real pain. Therefore my next step was to get the latest Cura version 4.8.0 in the hope to get the USB connectivity I had on my trusty old Dremel printer. Well, I found the profile for my printer, set the Baud rate to the appropriate 115200 and could connect PC and printer. Only to realize that there is some problem - af
