Printer not printing what is on SD card

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer not printing what is on SD card

I tried to search for this topic before posting, but had no luck. We have recently purchased a Monoprice mini 3d printer that came with CURA software. I can prepare a file in Cura and save it to my SD card, when I take it to the printer it sees the file and "opens" it, but never prints. Any idea what I am missing?

Thanks

be sure that Cura has finished writing the file to the SD card before you remove it from your computer

 

you can also open the Gcode file on the SD card in cura (it will open in layers mode) if this works OK then it must be a problem with your printer

good luck and welcome to the forum
