Problem with a GCode file


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with a GCode file

So I have this Gcode file that won't read on my Ender 5 plus. I have downloaded it and sliced it but it won't read on my printer. I have tried redoing the whole process but it still wont work. Here's a video of me slicing it and putting it into my printer. But the file doesn't pop up when it's in my printer.

    When changing/inserting Mirco-SD card, use the "change SD-Card" option to read the content of the SD-card that is present!


    Long filenames can be a problem, so keep them as short as possible (like the suggested DOS 8.3 format).  When a filename starts with "_" (underscore) this file will not show up on the printer... (found that out bij accident).
