Can I use Slic3r, Cura simplify3D with my mbot?


#1

Hello support! I bought years ago this 3d printer, I don’t know the exact name, the picture is this! With the squares in that position. This machine works well.

I would like to know if I can use any of those softwares to control my 3d printer.

So if you can answer me: Can I use Slic3r, Cura simplify3D with my Mbot Cube kit … ?
Because When I had used the software Mbot print, sometimes the program fail,

Thank you so much

I am not from the support team. But are you trying to print right from the program? Or do you save it to SD card and then print? SD card is the way to go.

I found the mbot software buggy at times too. Also I asked about the new mbot software working with the “grid 2”, but got no reply back yet. It isnt in the list of available printers.

So that is what your printer is called Mbot Grid 2. You need to select that in the settings within the program to get the right bed shape.
BTW I love this printer too!! It does a great job! Oh and evidently there is an auto bed level feature on this printer somehow. It will correct any unlevel by adjusting on the fly.
