I’ve flashed the printer, and done a PID tune and extrusion test without issue. I’ve tried to do a test print and the following happens.
- The printer heats up the extruder and bed
- The printer says it’s starting the print, and moves the head to a start position.
- The printer skips the actual “printing the object” step, but a green loading bar in the middle of the screen fills in a matter of seconds.
- The print head moves back to home and the printer cools down.
I’ve tested with one of the files that was on the original Balco memory card, one from the included Cura 3.4 with Balco settings preinstalled, and one new gcode file from Cura 4.12.1. I’m at a loss how to debug this, as I can communicate with the printer via USB, it can read the files, it’s just not printing. I could try printing via USB but I’m not sure that would show me anything useful.
You can see in the video here that there’s no error message, it’s just not done any actual printing. The filament load and unload is fine. It’s not a failure to extrude, it just doesn’t start any of the actions needed to print.
