CTC MakerBotReplicator2 Clone doesn't print x3g file generated by Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · CTC MakerBotReplicator2 Clone doesn't print x3g file generated by Cura

I am new to 3D printing and as the Replicator G software that the printer manual says to use will not produce .x3g files that show up on the printer anymore, I have moved to Cura to hopefully be able to print again.

I am trying to configure all the settings correctly and print a simple block. However, when I load the file to the SD card and press build on the printer nothing moves and it just gets stuck at 0%.

Attached is the screenshot of my printer settings, which I'm not sure are correct. Any insight would be appreciated.

I have this printer: link


Many thanks in advance

      • 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
