Hi, I’m new to all this forum stuff, so please excuse any mistakes.
I’m really struggling with exporting .stl files to memory sticks. My expectation is to use either a micro SD card in an adapter or a normal memory stick depending on what 3D printer I want to use the eventual code file for.
To get to a slicer the .stl has to go to my MacBook Air, and at present that is beset by Apples bizarre security systems such that I cannot use iCloud, which isn’t that great here since reception is pretty poor. So, I need to use transferable memory.
When I export to any memory stick everything seems ok, Shapr3D says done, and if I look in files BEFORE removing memory stick the file size seems ok. However, if I remove and then reinsert the memory stick the file just contains a few kilobytes and, as you’d expect, creates error messages on either Slic3r or Chitubox.
When iCloud works the files transfer correctly, but there clearly something wrong when I’m using portable memory.
I don’t know if this is a Shapr3D problem or an IPad problem, or something wrong with the memory sticks, several of which have failed recently.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
