What is Error 1 (Error Code 1)?


In my last two print jobs across two different Form 3 printers, I’ve encountered Error Code 1. In the first instance it prevented me from printing a cleaning mesh. In the second instance it interrupted a print that was maybe around 10 layers in. There doesn’t seem to be any explanation as to what has gone wrong.


Just found same Error Code 1 here, only some layers printed out…


me too, did any one get an answer as to what it is?
My printer doesn’t seem to be heating up to 31 deg c any more so wondering if they are related.


Support team reply: “Error 1 is a simple error code - it is a broken file. Simply regenerate the supports in PreForm and reload to the printer and it should work fine.”


I just got an error code 1 too, print stopped halfway through. Adaptive layers might have been on but I don’t remember for sure.


Just happened again to a print I wanted to complete over the weekend. What a waste of time- you would think these printers were more reliable for the cost.
