Trouble printing on a printrboard printer

Posted · Trouble printing on a printrboard printer

Hi everyone,

I have problems identifying my exact problem, I can only assume that is is related to Cura, hence the choice of topic.

To start at the beginning. I got my hands on a really unknown printer(Hadron FM Pro). It runs with a printrboard rev. e and for convenience I added a panelolu2 to have a display and the possibilities of a Ultimaker1.

To my knowledge I flashed Marlin with extension for the panelolu correctly to the board.

Next I tried to add a new maschine to Cura and I tried it with "Other", then "Ord" since the "Ordbot" seems to be close to what I have.

But starting the the gcode on my printer just produces strange lines that don't correspond with the original part.

So my best guess is that I screwed up the setup in Cura.

Is there anyone that can help or has an idea where I can search for solutions?

Thanks alot

    Personally, I'd try putting in by Hand, GCODE for positioning, to ensure it can respond to simple commands. From that information, you can infer how it's interpreting the code. Playing with the various commands, and setups, you may find what will work for you.

    Here is a listing of GCODE as shown in a couple Wiki that might help:

    Wikipedia GCODE Reference

    and one for rep-rap, and others that implement GCODE:

    Rep Rap, and other printers

    If you machine can't handle basic GCODE entries, especially the common ones; you'll at least have an idea that the problem is in how it's handling the Code which would be in the interface and so you'll need, possibly at least, a specialized driver of some kind to interface between the OS and your board.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
