Waiting for first available


Recommended Posts

Posted · Waiting for first available



A colleague brought me a sliced file to print out. He doesn't have the printer installed in his computer.


I have taken the file, use the parts and sliced them again.


When I send the to the printer, via network, they go to a queue


"Waiting for first available" and never printing


The printer is connected and online


Why is this happening?


Is it related to creating the files in another computer?

    This message means that a) your printer is waiting with the message "Remove prints from the build plate" or more likely b) that you have sliced the file with a different material than loaded in the printer. Make sure the materials are matching.
