Trouble making first print

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

So i have gotten to the first print stage and am having some troubles.

Im currently working my way through this page:

http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Newcomer_guid ... t_3D_print

For software, since i am usning an old 32bit winxp i chose:

UltiReplicatorG-0024-r3-windows.zip from the software page.

now, it lets me connected to the printer, i have checked all the stops, in the NewComer_guide im up to

step 4 : generating the gcode.

in the software version i have , i can select skienforge 39 settings and not 40 that is in the docs.

if i edit any of the profiles, to the settings in the docs, and select "save all" and close the window, replicator g hangs. ie, i can see the select profile window, but i cant select anything. if i force close the repg program and reopen it the settings have saved to that profile.

So , i go to generate the gcode, which works, it , but it never allows my in the ui or the gcode menu to select "build"...

How do i proceed?

Or better yet whats the path to debugging what is going on here?

Cheers

Kym

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
