Pronterface question
May 04, 2016 05:43PM
Sorry if this is a basic question. I have almost completed building my first 3D printer and I'm trying to get the software sorted out. I downloaded Pronterface and can't get it to run.

I'm using windows 10 and have both Python 2.7 and 3.5 installed. When I run the pronterface.py program I get a message that says ImportError: no module named numpy.

I am very confused. I think I have it for python 3. I entered pip install numpy and it installed. If I start python 3 in the command prompt and enter import numpy then I get a cursor. I'm assuming that I have numpy for python 3 but not 2. Here's where I'm lost because I can't find a straight forward way to get numpy for 2.

I hope that made sense. I'm trying very hard to learn all this but starting at age 40 I'm a bit slow!

I messed with this a little more last night. I found the numpy folder in the puthon35 directory. Anyway to use this to install that in 2.7?

Ok, I think I got it started (the pronterface console opened), but I got the following error in the command prompt:

C:\Users\brian\Desktop\3D Print\Printrun-master>pronterface.py
WARNING:root:Memory-efficient GCoder implementation unavailable: No module named gcoder_line
WARNING:root:psutil unavailable, could not import power utils:No module named psutil

Falling back to 2D view, and here is the backtrace:

You seem to be trying to run it from source code but there should be windows executable version that can just be downloaded and run.
