Rostock MAX Not printing w/ S3D

Postby davec3275 » Fri Dec 18, 2015 5:06 pm

I thought I would throw this up here to see if anyone has had the same issue. I have been using Simply3D for about 2 weeks now to print on my Rostock V2 without issue. That is, until now.

All of a sudden I get this strange occurrence where when I first connect to the printer and click "Print from USB" S3D sends a few initial commands to the Rostock (i.e. towers home) and then nothing. The stream of replies in the Machine Communication window just stops and even after stopping the print I get nothing.

In order to print using S3D I have to select "Disconnect" and then "Connect" in S3D. After that, it works fine...at least until the next print.

Anyone else have this issue? Any thoughts? I already uninstalled S3D and totally cleared the Process settings.

Windows 7 64-bit.

I re-downloaded the 64-bit version to re-install.

Also, tired printing in MatterControl again and had zero issues.

I was having a similar issue. In my case it was from using the machine control panel to extrude filament and then hitting print. the printer would home and then just sit there. I had to restart the printer and reconnect usually. I found that after extruding filament if I hit the home all button on the jog screen and then hit the begin printing over usb command it prints normally.

HM!! I will have to give that a try. I do usually extrude some filament prior to a print to prime it some.Thanks!
