Simplify3D Software printing problem

I just started printing with Simplify3D Software and went through all the checks with the "X", "Y", & "Z" jogging and it all seems to work until I press the "Start Job" icon. The screen shows the printing process but the Creatr3d just stutters and doesn't move!!!

What did I forget to do.


Maybe waiting for the heat to stabilize on something?
In the profile I usually turn that off for the bed heater.

 

And what will happen if you try printing with Repetier, just to check?

Well----I found out that the extruder temperature was, some how, turning off after making several layers and when it cooled down, of course, no filament was being extruded. So I would have to stay around and reset the temperature 2 or 3 times then it would complete the print. 

Did you check the temp settings in simplify and check if al settings are on the choosen extruder ( if you have a dual printer)

Still learning the printer and settings. I thought the settings on the "Manual Window" would set the temp. Didn't know I needed to go to the set-up section to set them up.

Hi 

How did you solve this problem ?


Thanks Amnon

Filament Guide

ABS
  • Extrude at ~ 225o C.
  • Requires heated bed.
  • Works reasonably well without cooling.
  • Adheres best to polyimide tape.
  • Filament tolerances are usually tighter.
  • Prone to cracking, delamination, and wraping.
  • More flexible.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents(Acetone or MEK).
  • Fumes are unpleasent in enclosed areas.
  • Oil Based.
PLA
  • Extrude at ~ 180-225o C.
  • Benefits from heated bed.
  • Benefits greatly from cooling while printing.
  • Adheres well to a variety of surfaces.
  • Finer feature detail possible on a well calibrated machine.
  • Prone to curling of corners and overhangs.
  • More brittle.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives.
  • More pleasant smell when extruded.
  • Plant Based.
