Problem Opening .stl Files in ReplicatorG on a Mac

Recommended Posts

I just put together a new Ultimaker, and while the build went well (so far as I can tell), I haven't been able to get the software side of things to work.

Whenever I open Replicator G, the window loads fine, I can connect to my Ultimaker, and using the Control panel to move the axes, adjust the temperature, and run the extruder all works. However, whenever I try to load a .stl file to try slicing and printing, the ReplicatorG terminal says "Loading [filepath]/[file].stl" and nothing happens. Even after 10 minutes, I get no window showing my model, and this happens with every .stl file I have tried.

I am running Mac OSX 7.4, with Java 1.6.0_33 and Python 2.72, and Replicator G 0035.

Does anyone recognized this problem, or know what I can do about it?

Thanks,

Clark

    • "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.
