I’m new to the MPCNC world and am asking for help. I purchased the ramps board/driver/mega package from here (vicious), have a psu all configured and ready to go, installed repetier host on two different computers, but cannot get the host to connect and talk to my board.
I was dedicating an old laptop to my MPCNC machine and couldn’t get it connected, so I brought the board to my main computer where I am running a Printrbot Simple Metal with Cura controlling it to see if it was a laptop issue, but I keep getting the same message: “The connection failed with the following error: The port COM1 does not exisit. Make sure your printer is connected, enabled and connection data is set correct. Open printer settings?” I am probably doing something really bonehead, but cannot figure it out, so I’m asking for your help.
This forum has been a myriad of help to me and I’ve always been able to figure out what my issue is by searching and reading. Thank you in advance.
