Keeps printing the same model and finishes after the raft

Fri Jan 19, 2018 7:21 pm

I have a MakerBot Replicator2x.

I have two significant issues.

First, the printer is stopping the fillament feed at the end of the two top raft layers. It does this every time.

Now, I can't even load a new model to print. Well I can load it, but it keeps printing the original model. It's like it's stuck in the cache.

I've restarted the software, computer, reloaded the model, even removed the app and licence reinstalled it.
Still it reverts to printing the same model.

I'm not sure where to go from here.

I used the software successfully for 2 weeks until I got this bug.

thanks in advance

Are you copying the files to the SD card or trying to print over USB?

If you're using USB, try clicking "Save toolpaths to disk" to save the file to your hard drive. Then open the machine control panel, connect to the printer, and then click the "Print" button in the top left. Then you can select the file you exported.
