  • MakerBot Replicator 1: Extruder heats up but doesn't print

    I'm using a MakerBot Replicator 1 with Simplify3D software. I am trying to print a simple object using only the right extruder. Once the nozzle reaches the desired temperature, it remains stationary. It holds the temperature steady but does nothing beyond that. The left extruder is set to 0C, so it should not be waiting for that. Disabling the left extruder altogether has no impact.

    Disabling the script to wait for a steady temperature causes it to print immediately regardless of the extruder's temperature.

    Has anyone encountered a similar issue? How did you resolve it?

    If you have left set to 0 is might be wait to cool down to that. Some printers not sure with this one will detect over temps and only print when the temp is within s certain window. It might be in the firmware of the printer to not extrude untill nozzles are both at a certain temp. so set to somthing above room temp. or the absolute min temp it will extrude at.
