The kit printer I built a few years back has been cranking out parts so well it's been my go to printer for the last few months. But I ran some wood filament through and it clogged. It's been a while since I've even powered on the Cetus. But now that I'm trying to use it, what was once a decent little printer is now not working.
I think I'm past the first issue I had where it wouldn't recall the calibration and thought it was at zero and a zero height printer. It now seems to recall the calibration after power down. This is good since I need to move the printer near my computer whenever calibration is required.
Now that I'm past the zero height printer, whenever I slice, I get an error message regarding insufficient filament in the printer (BTW, please remove this check or at least allow for an option to disable it!! I can see how much filament I have left on any given roll and if I run out during a print, honestly, who cares?). I get the message twice near the end of the slicing before Cetus Studio tries sending the data to the printer. Both times, I click OK.
Cetus Studio then starts to send commands to the printer. This is where the critical failure occurs. In the bar across the top (where Printer Not Intialized is displayed upon initial load), the message now reads Save to SD Card and I receive a dialog indicating "ERROR: Data Transfer Failure (6). Fail to send cmd to printer."
Additionally, while not a critical issue, the display name which once was the serial number is now part of file path and some Chinese characters (currently it reads "rogramFiles=C:P???").
I have tried to uninstall and re-install the software and am running version 184.108.40.206. In the meantime, I'll try to see if I have an older version of Cetus Studio lying around.
