Print icon not showing in Cura

Recommended Posts

Brand new to Cura and 3D printing so please forgive the basic questions!

 

Opened Cura and loaded a .STL from Thingiverse.  File loaded fine but no "Print" icon appeared.  Went to File-Print but the printer didn't respond.  I also created a simple object on TinkerCad but got the same result in Cura.  Other objects I downloaded from Thingiverse printed with no problem.  What am I doing wrong?  Using a PrintrBot Play printer.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick replies!!

 

When I fired up Cura this evening, it walked me through the configuration wizard like a brand new install (I have version 15.04.4 now).  I modified a few settings per my PrintrBot documentation and then loaded the model file I first had problems with.  Everything loaded fine and it is printing as I'm typing.  Go figure!  I am printing via USB cable (no Wifi capability on this printer) but I will try using the micro SD card at some point.

 

Thanks for the help!  I'll keep working with it.

    • "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.
