I have a printrbot simple metal with the heated bed upgrade. I think theirs a problem with my board, so long story short, I'm just trying to print without actually heating up the bed. The problem I am faced with is when I try to print from Repetier, it's still trying to connect the heated bed. I can't find any settings for shutting this off anywhere. How can I bypass this so I can still print? Thanks!
A workaround would be to post-process your gcode files manually removing all
M190 instructions (the one setting heated bed temperatures).
You can do that manually by opening your GCODE file in a text editor and searching for
M190, but I recently had the same problem with Slic3r (Prusa edition) and I wrote a one-liner that does that automatically for me.
