Repetier 90...Latest Version
« on: July 25, 2013, 10:26:30 PM »
So I attempted to download this and got "Abort, Ignore, & Cancel" option. So I cancelled.

Previously I have had trouble with the Printer stopping randomly mid-print. That was solved with a Double Ferret USB cord. Until I attempted the Latest Repetier 90 download. Now it is back to randomly stopping mid-print.

I have just now successfully downloaded 90 without the "abort, ignore, cancel" option. I have not yet plugged it in to see if this stops the mid-print stop.

But something I see that is different in the Printer Settings is "Reset on Connect". Is this solving the random mid-print stoppage by resetting the program where it has been interrupted? or keeps it from being interrupted?

So I tested my Repetier 90 download and I am going to assume it is not Repetier. It is doing the exact same thing as before, stopping 2 minutes into a print. So I did get the double Ferret USB cord and that fixed it. I have not changed or moved a cord after about 30 prints, some where 10+ hours long. Now I can't even get the first layer printed.

Do USB cords go bad easily? I am going to buy another one to see.

Any other variables that may cause this situation?

I'm not understanding what issue you are having. You are getting an an "Abort, Ignore, & Cancel" message when you try to download Repetier Host? What OS are you on? What browser are you trying to use to download it? Does the message say anything else?

As far as I think I have now downloaded Repetier correctly and I am not getting the error message.

The issue is midprint stoppage again...which at first I thought was the latest version of Repetier but now it may be the issue I had earlier of stopping mid-print.

I had gotten the new USB cord with double ferrite which was working great. Then I downloaded Repetier and then shortly after I haven't been able to have a full print. I had not changed my set up or moved any cords and now things won't print.

So I was going to buy another cord from a different company. Was also thinking of just getting another ferrite to add to the USB cord that came with the Bukobot kit...do you think this is a good option?

There are not very many options for double ferrited USB cords.

Does adding a ferrite like this one OK?
