Firmware has become unresponsive

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I've been having trouble with my 3d printer recently. Within the first few layers, the simplify 3d command line on my computer will tell me that my printer's firmware has become unresponsive.

As a bit of background, I have a Type A Series 1 3d printer. I recently upgraded to a new G2 extruder following these instructions:

http://support.typeamachines.com/hc/en-us/articles/201509235-Upgrading-to-the-Winchester-G2-Extruder

It should be noted that as part of the upgrade, I had to upgrade the Marlin firmware for the RUMBA motion controller.

Has anyone else seen this issue? I have several theories:

1. My simplify 3d software is incompatible with the new Marlin firmware

2. Simplify 3d is creating corrupted .gcode files

3. There is a bug in the marlin firmware

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Austin

By the way, is there a way to attach a file in this forum so that I can include the .gcode file?

Hi Austin,

I dont know if your going to get much support here since you are not using Cura, not printing on an Ultimaker printer and I don't know if the Marlin version you are using is the same as the one we use on the Ultimakers.

Can you try slicing your object with Cura? If the old S3D gcode worked maybe you changed something in the settings?

You cant attach gcodes directly.

To upload images you need to go in the Gallery (check the top left menu) first and upload in an album. Then you can click the MyMedia button in this text editor and you'll be able to pick the Gallery Image to insert in the post.

We know... its a pain...

    • "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.
