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
