Connecting Robo 3D r1+ to MatterControl or Cura
I have had two 3D printers previously and seeing this my father purchased the Robo 3D R1+, and has had it for about 6 months or more and still has yet to get it working. I can see the USB/ serial port active in the connecting setup process but it will not connect to Matter Control and have literally tried every available combination of options in the software. I am guessing I may need to update the software in the printer itself; however, have not been able to locate files or information about this on the site. I have also tried Cura 2.5 with no success in connecting the printer.
I am using Linux Mint 18.1 64-bit. The original SD card has Matter Control 1.3 July 6, 2015.
Thanks in advance!
If you can't connect with either MatterControl or Cura, then the problem is most likely with the board. We've seen this occasionally with Robo printers; contact their tech support for a replacement board.
