Creatr won't move or print!

Postby jeroeann » Fri Feb 06, 2015 11:42 am


I bought a Leapfrog dual extruder, and installed the software.
There are a few problems, i don't know to fix,
First of all, when I want to manually move my printer, it doesn't move.
Only the extruder and the printbed will heat.

Secondly, when I slice with Slic3r, the printer says he is printing, but nothing happends?

I don't know what to do yet, maybe someone can help me?
A least, sorry for the bad English :(

First, the software will send requests to the printer for status updates. Check the "console" window in the software. You should see requests and replies. If not then try a different "baud rate".

Second, always home X/Y/Z axis after turning on the printer. The printer won't respond properly to commands until this happens.

Let us know if this helps.
