I just bought a second hand lulzbot taz 3 printer. I’ve installed the lulzbot edition of cura, latest version (17.01 I think?) anyway, when I go to print then it pops up the wizard but it doesn’t connect. When I press connect the lulzbot seems to reboot and then says ready but then the software, after saying connecting for a while, says closed.
It’s def on the right com port (com port 6) according to device manager etc.
I don’t get any kind of error, at least not in the gui, does it log somewhere?
I managed to get the rocktopus printing from the SD card, which is great, but would really prefer to use my laptop if possible. It’s down in the shed and I’m watching it print via teamviewer/webcam:
This is what I mean when it says “closed”
Any help is appreciated. (PS, what is the trick for getting the filament to stay on the reel? It says something in the instructions of the TAZ 3 but I can’t understand what it means?)
Sorry if these are beginner issues but this is my first 3d printer.
