Wrong printer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Wrong printer

This seems like a stupid question but I’m asking anyway so I make sure it won’t work. I use ultimaker Cura and I have an ender-3, but for the printer name I had it as the printer Endor 3. so of course I didn’t see until I had 30 files sliced and saved to my computer. it’s still a .gcode file and I’m pretty sure they were the same size in buildplate, so will this work on my printer or do I have to change every file to an Ender-3 printer

    It's fine.  If you had two Ender 3's you would have to name one of them differently anyway.  You can change the name under "Manage Printers".  The gcode isn't affected.

    It's possible that the printer might take offense if you call it by the wrong name.  I know mine hates it when I call it "you stupid #@$%@ machine!".
