FilePath3DP error


When I load in the module that is exported when using the 3D printing PowerPac on to the actual robot, I get an error in Main3dp with specifically "FilePath3DP" at line 55 being underlined in red. I was wondering what could cause the error as I can simulate the 3d print fine in robotstudio and the underline does not exist. I was able to print fine before but went on a hiatus and now am seeing this issue.

Sorry if this question is dumb, I am very amateurish when it comes to RAPID programming.

    Did you create a new folder for the 3DP export under "HOME/3DP_EXPORT/" in the Virtual Controller?
    See page 32 in the 3DP Application Manual.

    This folder should you then transfer to the real robot and place under "HOME/3DP_EXPORT/" to print with the real robot.

    Another thing that can cause this problem is if you not have the same version of the 3DP RW Add-In in the real robot as in the Virtual Controller.
