Uncomfortable yes, but with helpful folk like yourself, I think I can get it all sorted :c)
I have worked out that the print stopped at 75.6mm or 378th layer. I'm printing at .2mm layers. I don't have a heated bed, but a light bulb powered heated chamber and the print is stuck down really well, so no problems there.
The main issue is understanding how to set the homing position to the back left in the gcode, is there an override that is in firmware? Can't seem to figure this out.
Printrun/Pronterface looks great, but I think I just need to fix the homing thing and I'll be away.
Thanks bud :c)
Quite uncomfortable situation.
So you know exactly where the print stopped (layer no. or z height), maybe even where in the layer?
You don't have a heated bed or you managed to keep the heated bed warm? Then you have everything what's needed to continue the print. @gr5 has once written detailed instructions how to continue a failed print but I cannot find it here on the new forum. Maybe he can point out where it is/was.
If Cura turns out to be not reliable enough for USB printing in your case you should give Printrun/Pronterface a try for now. As you realised, printing from an Ulticontroller is the best thing you can do.
edit: Did you loose any of the three coordinates? Is re-homing necessary?Edited by Guest
