# Printrbot Simple + OctoPrint on PC not working

I am running the newest version of OctoPrint server on my Windows 10 PC, and accessing it with Mozilla Firefox on the same PC.

I also installed Cura 15.04 and selected the Printrbot Simple profile, and pointed to the Cura install path in the OctoPrint client so that it can use it for slicing.

I plugged in my printer and it was recognized by OctoPrint. The nozzle temperature is correctly shown, and I can turn the fans on/off in the control tab.

However, I cannot do anything else in the control tab, including moving the axes. I have not imported any sort of printer profile into OctoPrint, since I cannot figure out how to or where to find my printer's information.

There has not been any kind of calibration process I can find either. Can anybody help me find a print profile/calibrate my printer, and just get it working so I can move the axes/print something out?

• What does octoprint.log say in terms of errors? – tedder42 Jan 28 '19 at 6:06
• octoprint.log has 0 errors in it. When I look in the Gcode console, all of the G28 (homing axis) all have "ok" as a response. No errors can be found anywhere. The printer just doesn't move aaaa – Philip KP Jan 29 '19 at 23:14

Before any axis can move the printer must be homed correctly (G28 command, or an equivalent home button, there are 2: an X/Y and a Z button). A correct printer profile must also be defined; this profile contains some bed geometry and speed data, these are some basic values that are easy to add through the wrench button and "printer profiles" menu item.
