Printer wont print even after a new config file

  • So I'm in the process of fine tuning my Prints and I have started making some parts for my car.
    Finally get a good model happening and when I Hit the button to Upload and print. It up loads the Gcode file and then turns the hotend and bed off and tells me the print has completed.

    The printer doesnt even home or try to do a preprint calibration.

    I was printing 2 days ago turned it off and then came to print today and got given this.

    Any ideas?

    Heres my config file:

  • The usual cause for this is that the print tried to start with no tool selected. Try putting T0 (or whatever tool you want to use) in the start gcode of the file you want to print. You don't have to re-slice the model. Just use a text editor like notepad++ and put T0 somewhere before the first G1 command. If it works, add that to your slicer start gcode so that you don't have to do it every time.

  • I'll give it a try tomorrow but I don't understand why it is doing it all of a sudden, but I will see maybe I'll just but it in the start file from the beginning, And see if it works thanks deckingman

  • Ok so I tried it and placed T0 in the start up section on two gcode files that i have printed before and still didn't do anything stated it uploaded 100% printer doesn't re-home and start calibration and both the bed and hot end switch off and start to cool down.

  • Check the contents of the file you are trying to print.

    I tried to print a calibration file from thingiverse - nogo - the model was invalid - nothing to print.


  • What happens if you don't turn on the bed and hot end before trying to print?

  • I checked the content and it's there and I have tried not turning on the hot bed and hotend. Funny thing is it prints when I teither it by usb and use simplify3d. But the calibration doesn't actually do anything and results in a very high nozzle. I just find it weird that it was working perfectly fine before and i was printjng everything then all of a sudden this happens
