Hi there,

Just installed Netfabb on my mac, but I'm unable to connect to the Ultimaker.

When I hit connect, nothing happens.

When I go to the tab Machine and where I can choose baud rate etc, I can not select an serial (???) port, vas a USB port.

Am able to connect via Replicator.

Cheers,

Bart

PS I'm a newbie ...

    Well, currently the printing from NetFabb is unstable anyhow (cuts out before the end) so it's recommended generate GCode with NetFabb and to print from RepG or PrintRun.

    But i paid full price for a license, recommended by the people from Ultimaker ...

    How can I get a refund?

    Be patient - a new version is coming out soon and hopefully that will be better. In the meantime, you can use repg or one of the other host programs to send netfabb-sliced stuff to the printer.

    Personally, I think netfabb would be a lot smarter in this area if they allowed an API so people could do their own host plug-ins.. They'd get paid but we'd do the work.

    NetFabb still works as a slicer. So you generate GCode with NetFabb (which is faster, and some say better, then RepG) and then print using RepG.

      • 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.
