Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm Frank G.

 

I have a question!

Trying to print something on my new Anet  A8 3D Printer ,

I'm using  cura 14.07 software, and I downloaded something I want to print.

When I connected my CD card to my PC so I can upload my data to the CD card,

I got a message saying, do I want to format my card.

I don't understand, in that if I format the CD card I'll lose my data.

could you help me whit this please.

 

Thanks

Frank G.

    This is a windows question.  Not a cura question.

     

    If you format the SD card you will indeed lose everything on there.  I get that message all the time and just choose to not format my SD card.  But if there is nothing important on the SD card then go for it.  This message comes up if windows thinks the card might be corrupted.  So it is a good idea to format it.  But usually (99% of the time) it's not necessary.  But if you are getting strange behavior such as your print ends half way through for no reason and when look at the file on the SD card and the top half looks fine and the bottom half is full of random characters - well then it's time to format it.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
