Hello
I have built my Prusa i3 x no diffculty. However the contol panel states "No SD Card" what does this mean and should I have one. I am using Windows 7 and think I have down loaded the drivers for FT232RUSBUART. But I cannot get my computer to talk to the printer any ideas please.JR

Old post I know but may help someone else....
I had this issue with the undamaged factory nozzle straight out of the box...

To fix:
Take the factory nozzle off.
Throw it in the bin.
Buy a new 0.4mm one.
Even a cheap 99p ebay one is an upgrade and worked like a charm to get you started.


The original nozzle looked like it was made by a badly trained monkey!
The 0.35mm hole was only 0.2mm was drilled at an angle off centre and had swarf blocking it!

I have some problems with printing. So when I start to print with repetier host, it will first heat bed and after that extruder. But just before extruder reaches temperature, repetier host is giving error: "Printer stopped due to errors. Fix error and use M999 to restart (Temperature reset. Set it before restarting)". Everyting worked ok and suddenly this came up.

Edit: printer is Geeetech Prusa i3 Pro B

Any idea what is causing this? :P

I am having an issue with my layers not adhering with each other. The print head moves up .7 mm or more when it goes to start the next layer so it is just strings laying on top. I have trouble shot all the rest of the problems with it but this one has not been simple and have been working on it for 3 days now.

1. You have to confirm the firmware is right. And you can find the firmware in this web.
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17046
And we suggest you use the Arduino IDE 1.0.1 to upload.
https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/OldSoftw ... ases#1.0.x
And you can refer to this below post to learn how to upload the firmware for GT2560.

2. The slice settings of layer high should be small. Maybe the layer high is 0.7mm so that the nozzle lifts 0.7mm.

I have had this printer since 2015, and I can tell you with confidence that purchasing it was a hugeeee mistake. The number of hours I've spent calibrating/fixing/upgrading this printer has far exceeded the number of hours I've actually printed using it. First, it was the unstable frame, then it was leveling the bed, which finally led to me upgrading to auto levelling. Mounting and installing the sensor was another mission on its own. Oh, and let's not forget the cheap parts that would not fit one another.

Stay away from it and just buy the actual prusa i3. Trust me, the few hundreds of $$ you save is NOT worth the frustration.

I agree. Now after few years I just have to say it was a waste of almost 300 euros. Won't be bying Geeetech anymore.
