Posted · Can't load Netfabb .gcode with pronterface

Hi there

I want to test the slicing with Netfabb and try to load the generated .gcode (this) with pronterface but on the commandline I get this error:

0 mm of filament used in this print
the print goes from 5.01 mm to 12.24 mm in X
and is 7.23 mm wide
the print goes from 197.81 mm to 200.0 mm in Y
and is 2.19 mm wide
the print goes from 0.0 mm to 49.93 mm in Z
and is 49.93 mm high
Exception in thread Thread-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/threading.py", line 530, in __bootstrap_inner
   self.run()

 File "/Applications/3D/cura/Printrun/pronsole.py", line 143, in estimate_duration
   moveduration = currenttravel / f
ZeroDivisionError: float division by zero

Any ideas what I did wrong? Thanks.

    looks like NetFabb generated a feedrate of zero somewhere. Could you check if there is an "F0" somewhere in your netfabb generated GCode?

    He shouldnt check, you should make sure it will never turns to 0, because that will mean it will freeze the machine :p

    Hi Daid

    I checked my .gcode (download it here) and can't find an "F0".

    Some infos: I installed profiles from Paul for Netfabb and used for print quality the "1a: Standard Quality - Filled Object" setting. I even added that at the beginning of the code: M92 E14

    I'm pretty sure I do not control the GCode generater in NetFabb ;-)

    But it's a bug in PrintRun. It uses 0 as default feedrate when you haven't got a feedrate yet. And you have a "G1 E0" before any feedrate setting in your start code. Which causes a move time calculation with a zero feedrate. I've fixed it for the next version.

    Hi Daid

    Thanks for your help and fixing this in your next version! Btw. where do I find out when you next version is ready?

    So, for a quick fix I could just remove this line wiht "G1 E0"?

    A quick fix would be indeed to remove the G1 E0, or put an F300 behind it so it has a feed rate.

    My next version is ready when it's ready :p I'll announce it on the forums. RC2 is only a week old right now. And has only 2 bugs that I know off (first run wizard problems, first layer of support has too little material). There are a bunch of new features in the work, the project planner being the biggest of them all.

    Great! I'm looking forward. I really appreciate the work you do with Cura. Thanks again.

    Have you tried printing anyway? I can't remember if I get that error in the terminal (because I don't really look at it) but I do know that it doesn't show a preview of the slices or an accurate time estimation, however, it still prints just fine.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
