Serial timout exception

Recommended Posts

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?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
