Tronxy XY-3 Gcode won't work with Cura

Posted · Tronxy XY-3 Gcode won't work with Cura

Hello, 

I just got my 3D printer and I was trying to set it up with the Ultimaker Cura 4.1.0 but the gcode will not import so I can't set it up to the specs of my printer. Unless I am doing it wrong? I tried dragging it in and it just fails. I tried opening it with a text editor and it looks like gibberish. I got the gcode from the manufacturers website. I have never used Cura before so I am not sure if I am doing something wrong or misunderstanding how it is supposed to work? I don't have the printer hooked to my computer at this time, would that help? Its heavy and I wanted to make sure it worked before I dragged it upstairs.  Thank you for being patient with my ignorance.  XY-3 configulation.gcode

    That's not gcode.  I'm not sure what it is but gcode is a text file.  You can open it with notepad.  That file has binary data in it.  Like a gcode file with viruses.

     

    Normally you start with an STL file (a model to be printed) and cura turns that into a gcode file which your printer prints.  I know nothing about the tronxy but 90% of the printers out there have marlin and are compatible with any reprap printer with tiny differences like whether or not it has a heated bed.

    This might be a little late but that is not the Cura profile but rather some additional gcode commands that the printer uses.

    I was confused when I looked at the same thing but it is written in Chinese and Notepad just displayed the random characters. I put the file into Microsoft Word and opened with the simplified Chinese encoding. I then translated the Chinese text into English and you get a rough approximation of what it is.

    I have attached the translated file in case you don't have access to Word.

      • 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.
