Slic3r not printing directly but ok from CURA 15046
January 23, 2019 02:02PM

So am new to Slic3r but using Cura 15.04.6 for long time now.
I have a Rep Rap Pursa I3 clone from Hic Top that is working ok with many hours of print under its belts so to speak.
Today however i have created a STL that cura does not seem to slice correct and basically print job stops after about 2mm of Z.

So i thought i would try Slic3r.

I have a small test print job about size of a penny MicroUsbSckBezel-1-0.stl
I have setup Slic3r correctly i think and used the Serial/USB Test button to see if Slic3r can see my printer which it does when plugged in and fails when usb is unplugged as to be expect.
I have export the test STL to gcode and printed it by importing it into cure and it prints just fine.
So i think the gcode sliced by Slic3r must be ok.

However, when i try to print this test print directly from Slic3r a message flashes up gcode sent to C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Temp\MicroUsbSckBezel-1-0.gcode
I have looked in C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Temp\ and the file MicroUsbSckBezel-1-0.gcode is present.
Next message is "File added to print queue" but the printer never starts and ideas please?

OS is Win10 Pro 64bit, Slic3r 1.3.0

Many thanks imk

Use Meshmixer to try to repair the STL file.

Yesterday I had a blackout when I restarted my pc the oprtion after print order, does not appear, I cannot connect, cannot move the extruder to any point of the bed, cannot pause, print again or abort, I reinstalled, and tried with an old version and nothing, so when I print, I have to scale 89.2% in X & Y axis but Z is OK
