Can anyone suggest a piece of 'simple' software for sending G-code to the printer. Specifically for things like feeding filament through.

I'm trying to fix (another brand A20T) a device with a problem . It's heating up but not feeding filament.

Regards

    My solution.  This one is the short version.  I have a full blown one as well.

    There is a readme file included in the Zip.  The app is unsigned and you will probably have to fool your anti-virus/firewall into allowing you to install it.

    Let me know if you have issues.

    Once again sir, a big THANK YOU..

    I will download and have a look shortly.

    What's the difference with the full blown version. If it's available I wouldn't mind a copy. Thanks

    There's just more stuff in it and a larger interface.  I think it works a bit better with touchscreens.  This is a screenshot of the main page.  It has tools for recovering a botched print as well as starting a print from any point within a gcode file.  You can store macros, run multiple printers from the single instance of the program, adjust settings in the printer like steps/mm, Home Offset, Accel and Jerk...stuff.

    Thanks

    I've only just got back in. Had a bit of an urgent place to be, I'd forgotten, till my calendar reminded me.

    Will be on to both after late lunch.

    Thanks again.00

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
