I am hoping someone can give me some suggestions of what to try. I am very new to 3D printing, so I may have easily missed something simple.
I have tried three different prints and all have halted at different places with the message "firmware unresponsive" It continues to attempt to continue but never does. I have restarted the machine, unplugged and replugged the USB cable and nothing gets it to pick back up where it left off.
I have tried the following troubleshooting:
I have updated the firmware for my Trinus 3D printer (although the Trinus forum said the update is really only to update the laser head attachment).
I have selected the Trinus selection from the printer selection drop down, but I have noticed that there is a firmware section with a dropdown as well (using the RepRap currently and have not changed it). Trinus will not provide a copy of the firmware, so I cannot load it separately.
I have moved the USB cable from my 2.0 to my 3.0 port (it actually quit sooner on the 3.0 than the 2.0).
I have tried using the "Save Toolpaths to Disk" to save to the SD card and not use USB at all, but I do not even get the print to begin printing, so something is wrong there to.
#1 does anyone have any ideas what I can try to avoid the firmware unresponsive error?
#2 would it do any good at all to change the firmware selection from RepRap to one of the other two selections?
#3 is there something I am missing with transferring all of the gcode to the SD card?
