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?

    • "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.
