Serial timout exception

Posted · Serial timout exception

i recently bought a second Ultimaker without an ulticontroller. The machine came assembled and with a few small mechanical problems. I am running it off a Windows XP system at the moment. On my first machine I never use the PC connection but print directly from the SD card.

When I try to print from CURA the new machine is detected correctly and the status goes to "machine operational". When I hit the print button the status says "serial timeout exception".

I then have to disconnect the usb, turn off the printer and restart the printing window.

To get around this I am currently running the machine using cura generated gcodes and pronterface. No problem at all here. But I would really like to be able to control print speed and this does not work in pronterface. Can someone help?
