problem setup tronxy p802m prusa i3 with cura

Recommended Posts

Hello to all guys, I'm here because I need help with cura software 2.4

The printer I have is a tronxy Prusa i3 p802m I've always used with repetier host and I never had any problems.

Lately I downloaded cura because I was reading that is higher and easier to use.

Start by saying that I had to force the update of the printer software for it to be recognized by cura and so I modified the 0.92 version I found on another site.

I set the printer profile as explained in the various guides by setting the size of the bed and of the extruder. In the section of gcode I left reprap (marlin) etc. Everything ok except when I go to start printing where I immediately noticed that the extruder makes a move without sense and sometimes print, then go over and back again to print etc etc. I think it is a problem of gcode but i tried all settings (reprap, repetier, makerbot etc.) but nothing change. Maybe someone can help me?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
