Simplify 3d and cubepro trio

Sat Jun 30, 2018 4:36 am

Sorry if I'm missing something here, we have a cubepro trio that I am determined to not be a complete waste of money. Using 3D Systems own slicer the quality, even at max, was worse than we are getting from an Up Mini. This software was suggested as a way to get better prints from the very expensive printer that has been unloved for years here.

I've purchased Simplify3D and set the printer as the cubepro trio, but I get a bfb file out of the software and not a cubecode file. I've tried converting it using CodeX but the printer sites there heating for a lot longer than it did with 3D Systems own sliced code. I guess I thus have two questions:

1) Have I missed something in setting up Simplify3D that would allow me to get a cubecode file out? Or do I need another converter?

2) Is the only way to printer from Simplify3D to the CubePro Trio to connect it via direct USB cable?

Help greatly appreciated.

1) need another converter. viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3113&p=25995&hilit=codex#p25995

2) You cannot print from usb cable. You need to load the print file into the machine from a flash drive.
