Probleem bij eerste gebruikname


Mijn zoon heeft een vertex nano sinds november 2019 en hij krijgt hem niet in gang. Hij heeft absoluut geen idee hoe het komt. Hij heeft al ervaring met printen dus het is voor hem niets nieuws. Hij stelt vast dat de machine niet opwarmt als je wil printen.
Wat kunnen we hier verder mee doen? Kan iemand hem op weg helpen?

Groeten ,

Hi Pam,

We have an english only rule here on this forum, this way we can help more people.
Which version of the Nano do you have? The pre build one or the kit version?
Are the wires properly connected?

Best Regards,


It is a kit version and the wires are proparly connected.



Can you make a movie of with you are doing to start a print?
and a picture of the build also one from the PCB please


Hello, can you tell me how I can upload a video with this site?

You can upload it on youtube and send a link :slight_smile:

Have you receive the link?

Yes sorry I didn’t respond immediately :slight_smile:

With which software did you slice the object?
It seems like you sliced the object for the wrong machine.

I sliced it with cura, I added a printer because the vertex nano wasn’t on the list. Then I changed the x,y and z ranges.

Nano should be on the list, please check again with the product code K8600.

With the latest version of cura the k8600 isn’t on the list. should I try an older version of cura?Wich version did you use for the previous picture?

Hi @pam,

We always try to use the latest version of Cura.
That is now v 4.4.1:

The Nano should definitely be in that list:

You can download cura here:

Kind regards,

I’ve downloaded the latest version and tried it. When i started the print, it doesn’t do the auto home and it doesn’t heat. My printing settings are in the video below

Hi @pam,

Could you post the first 100 lines of your gcode file?
What kind of filament are you using?

Kind regards,

Hi, can you tell me where I can find the gcode?
I use PLA as filament.

Kind regards

Hi @pam,

The gcode is the file you export from the Cura slicing program and put on an SD card for the printer.
This file can be opened with a text editor (like notepad) to see the content.
Please post the first 100 lines, so we can see what the printer is supposed to do.

Kind regards,

I have the same Problem with cura. No Auto home, no heating.
Here the first and the last gcode-data from my print.

Maybe the G-Code in the printer settings is corrupt.
