generating Gcode using Materialise

Hi,

Still newbie, I can connect computer to CreatrHS with Creatr1.0 to print ;-)

I've tried to generate a Gcode file with the software successfully.

So I have 2 questions.

1/

Is it necessary that printer is connected (usb) for the software generate Gcode ?

2/

Even when printer is connected, when I choose print to file / submit job :

Software create a folder

display "submit job" for few second

and... nothing

Folder is created but stay empty.

I'm pretty sure there is something to do.

Thanks for any advice

I think I've found an answer.

I was working on a mapped network drive and folder created stays empty.

Doing the same thing on C: local drive seems to create a Gcode file.

It's probably the reason (?).

Anybody has noted something like this (Matthias) ?
