Model will slice but printer don´t read the file

Post by kiloparsec »

I use Ultimaker CURA 4.7 to generate the file for a Anycubic Mega Pro Printer but when I put the SDcard in their slot, the printer detects de SDCard but doesn´t read the file (only demo files currently are read), I don´t have any Idea about what happens....really I need some advice.

best regards

Have you tried a different SD card. The one you are using may be faulty.

Also, I don't think the firmware will work with subdirectories or files longer than the dos 8.3 naming convention. Check those as well.

Make sure the file name is short, the anycubic printers (i have a Chiron) can be fussy like that
