    Hello, I just bought a used R1 from a yard sale. The seller knew nothing of the condition of the printer so I got a great deal on it. I need to get it up and running. I know the extruder has a broken pressure bar and everything else looks good. My question is, how do I test it since it has no sd slot and no lcd. All my previous 3d printing experience is from printing with SD cards and lcd operation.
    Once I figure that out i'm looking at upgrading what I can to make reliable. A list of suggestions or a link to a good source would be awesome.

    Even the Original R1 had an SD card reader. It is hidden under the bottom edge of the printer near the USB port plugin. Look for the slot down there.

    You can also hook a computer up with a cable to the USB port and use a host program (repetier host, mattercontrol, etc) to directly print to the machine over the USB port.

    if you attach some photos of your broken bit we can suggest where to print a new one. And as a side note I think its pretty awesome you found it at a yard sale lol!
