    Getting Mod-t to work these days

    My school was given a Mod-t 3d printer. (I am a STEM HS teacher.)
    After a lot of research, I found
    -- an ini file that Cusa could read
    -- the Mod-t printer utility
    -- the printer utility firmware update 0.9.0

    The printer utility doesn't connect to the printer, however. Nor do I see a way to get the utility to read the firmware update.

    Is there any way to get this functioning?

    With appreciation for any help,

    There are options...

    We ended up contacting friends who work in a local public school with decent funding. They had older 3d printers that they were no longer using (they had upgraded) and donated them. We were given 2 Flashforge Dreamers. These are great, far better than I could have imagined getting otherwise.

    Another option would be a crowdfunding project (gofundme, etc.); with a decent video from your students (or teachers) explaining the interest and need, you should easily be able to raise the amount needed. (The machines we were given currently retail for $390 new and might be available used.)

    Yeah a printer that runs off cloud software is useless when the company goes under and the cloud blows away.

    You'd probably need to use a generic motherboard and standard firmware to get it running again.

    The dreamers are nice machines, glad you got something running now :-)
