ctc fdm 3d printer - SD Card content

Hello! I accidentally formatted the SD card that came with the printer, and I would like to remake it. Can you please tell me what is the content of the card (and eventually upload an archive of the content)?

 

Lots of thanks!

I am missing the SD Card files for my CTC Bizer series Dual Nozzle 3D Printer.

Can anyone send me the link to download them.

This link did not have the files to install the setup.exe which is on the SD Card:  http://www.ctcprinter.com/download.php

I wish the main page had English.  None of the 'radio buttons' worked, therefore my copy is corrupt unfortunately.

Help!  Can you send results also to bardukian43@att.net?

It contains drivers for the printer, sample test files, cura, pronterface, and documentation. Everything is free and freely available to be downloaded form the Internet. The driver is the ch340 serial Port interface.

Cura is the program used to print it imports the part files an slices them to print. Pronterface is a more advanced interface to allow you to input commands and raw gcode to the printer. I use it to adjust the auto leveling offsets on my anet a8 and robo 3d. But to print things use cura.

I have I have a makerbot sw to print the files but will try cura.

I hope the driver will be ok.

My whole issue is that since I formatted the sd, when printing (it can also print with only a file-to-print on the SD card), the x axis is at moments changing its place and the objects get messed up. I don't know if it's the missing driver from the sd or another soft/hard problem..

MakerBot software won't work with this printer because MakerBot uses the x3g file format and the CTC uses stl files or sliced gcode so you have to use cura. When you first start cura you have to create a new profile make sure you put in the proper bed size. Then when it's complete it should load a test file a little robot go and set your temps for the material you are using and print. If this is your first time using a i3 variant printer there is way more config options than a MakerBot.
