RepRap - Issues trying to simulate a print
November 5, 2013
Okay, so this is my first forum post on LMR so bare with me please.
I've been working on my RepRap Prusa Mendel i2 printer so I can use it in my business, http://kellerrobotics.com that I am starting. However I am having troubles trying to just run a "cold print" so to speak. I'm wanting to simulate the printer printing something without extruding or having the heater cartridge on just to make sure I have everything involving axis movement setup properly. I have my ATX Power supply connected to the 5 amp connection only as of right now and whenever I try to print something, the printer homes and then I get the red lgiht coming on solid and its all stop from then on. I am getting scrollign code of T:18.0 E:0 W:? and the 18.0 is fluctuating between 17.9 and 18.2 or so, so I'm figuring that is the printer detecting ambient temperature or something. I am using the Ramps 1.4 board with Marlin software and using Pronterface as my slicer/g-code streamer. I will attach my configuration.h file from my marlin software in case something is wrong there. Just download the configuration.txt file and rename it configuration.pde and it will open in the Arduino IDE And all of my endstops do work so it does home, but other than that, it doesnt go any further in the printing process. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
