Hi Everyone,

I received my Felix 3.0 this morning and first impressions nice hardware, however I'm finding the software a total nightmare and unable to get up and running.

I am using a Mac, so have installed the drivers and software as per manual in point 4.2, i have Repetier Host Mac 0.56 open and stuck at 4.3

When i click connect, sometimes i get "connection opened" and bottom corner "5 commands waiting" i waited a while then did disconnect and reconnect and this time i got more stuff in the command box and status saying "idle" instead. I not something it can be random depending which i get.

The next stage is "Manual Control" i don't have this option in the tabs. i have as follows
Object Placement
Print Panel ( this is located where "Manual Control" is shown in the user manual)

I clicked on Print Panel thinking its just a different name, but it looks nothing like what I'm seeing in the manual, where you can click up and down arrows etc.

Im now stuck at this point and spent around 3 hours with the software at the moment. I must this say this is very different to the plug and play experience i got with another printer.

I used my Felix 3.0 on Mac OS recently using Repetier and while it was more pretty than its Windows counterpart, the software wasn't stable enough for me to get work done. Put it on an old Windows laptop and no issues since.

Hi all. I'm also a Mac user. Finished assembling my Felix 3d single extruder with LCD yesterday. Now looking for PLA in Sydney to roll out some test prints.
Out of the box my LCD displays the heading 'Felix 2.0' when the printer is fired up. Is there a firmware update I need to perform?

Hello Adapt. I recently bought a Felix 3.0 and had the same question. I did upgrade the firmware to the latest version and found the lcd interface to be much better. You can find the new firmware at ... =firmware/

Well, first off, better to describe what is or isn't happening?
