Cubicon printers - won't connect


#1

Hi, I am unable to connect the cubicon -110F(Single) with octorpint but I am able to connect to the printer with Simplify3d and Cubicreator (cubicons slicer). I tried playing with the settings in octoprint without any luck.

I tried playing with the serial connection settings in octoprint without any luck.

link to the printer: http://3dcubicon.com/english/product/product_01.asp?gidx=56
link to the s3d profile (dont know if it is what allows s3d to connect to cubicon) : http://www.3dcubicon.com/english/customer/tboard_view.asp?page=3&search=&keyword=&gubun=data&idx=205

Any help would be very appreciated!

Opening up the FFF file reveals the following:

baud rate: 250000

I think I would try to set the baud rate in OctoPrint to this.

Did that, sorry forgot to mention ...

Next, I would toggle on the serial log in the Settings, restart OctoPrint, attempt again to connect to the printer and upload the serial log here.

I also have a Cubicon Single (Plus) printer. My first attempt yesterday was unsuccessful. Could not connect to octoprint on my octopi.

Today I came back to it...I activated the serial port logging in octoprint and have the following log to share:

Sounds like the printer connects but doesn't respond to the M110 N0 command. I don't know anything about this printer, to be honest.


#7

And the links from the first post are also dead (404)
I assume the printer has a firmware that differs from Marlin and/or Repetier


#8

Might be this one.

Unless it's this one.

Thanks for responding! No my printer is similar but it replaced the single... Here is the link to it:

This machine has its own slicer. How do the produced files for the printer look.
Can you share a sample?

I'm not there yet. I can't get octopi (octoprint) to connect to the printer. But the files are a proprietary form of gcode extension. I did some test prints with a usb stick in the printer's slot, but octoprint doesn't recognize the printer at various baud rates so I haven't gotten to the point where I can actually send a print file. This being said...here is a successful print I did with the printer: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TmzTFPc8AumMLvX46Nz1M8a6CT2dvEM_/view?usp=sharing
The files are an .hvs extension, but apparently they are still gcode.

This page suggests that they're possibly G3DREM format, say, from the Dremel 3D20.

Related issue on the Slic3r repository. They seem to suggest that they're just gcode files. It's difficult to figure out which firmware is on your printer unless you could connect and then run an M115.

If it's the same firmware as on the Dremel (who knows?) then this might be an interesting read.
