Any Taz4 and Simplify 3D owners here? If so, did Simplify 3D work “just out of the box” or did you need to tweak it? I just bought Simplify 3D but am running into an issue. I’ve posted this issue to them but haven’t heard back yet so I thought I’d post the issue here in case anyone here has also run into this issue.
This issue I’m running into is that when I print in Simplify 3D, printing endlessly waits for the bed to heat up, even though the bed has reached the desired bed temperature.
I own a Taz4 with firmware v4.1 (Marlin 2014Q3)
(I checked the Lulzbot website and that’s also the latest firmware, and I haven’t made any hardware or firmware modifications)
When I print, Simplify3D isn’t able to get past the “waiting for bed to heat up” phase.
Here are the repo steps:
- Open Simplify 3D
- Import a model
- Click the “Prepare to print” button
- Select the Process1 profile (Taz4 ABS medium quality profile, which Simplify3D auto-created)
- Click the “begin printing over USB” button
The Taz starts up, in the sense that the fan on the CPU (not the fan on the nozzle) starts running, and the bed starts heating up.
(don’t know if this is the issue or not, but while although the bed heats up, the nozzle doesn’t heat up)
After a while, the bed gets to 90 degrees (the target bed temperature) but Simplify3D just waits, saying “Preheating Bed…” even though the bed heats up to the desired temperature of 90 degrees.
Incase this was an issue with Simplify 3D waiting for the nozzle to heat up (and not giving the correct status message), I pre-heated my Taz, then started to print in Simplify 3D, but the same thing happen (simplify 3D stalls and the progress window says, “waiting for bed to heat up”
