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
