Invalid file error

Posted · Invalid file error

Hi, Just got my Balco printer which comes with Cura. I can load a .STL file ok, slice it & save it, but if I try to load the resultant GCODE file back into Cura I get the 'Invalid file' message, but I can load the sample GCODE files that come with the machine.

Is this just a settings option I have wrong ?

Using version  3.4.1

    Hi Kevin

    Did you ever find the answer to this question? Like you I have a Balco and I use 3.4.1 but I have tried 4.1.0 and I can't do it with that version either. I also have version 15.04.03 which I had to use when I first got the printer because the supplied version (3.4.1) didn't work because of my outdated video driver. The odd thing is that 15.-4.3 doesn't give the error but will only show something in Layer mode, the rest of the modes are blank.
