Punch-up the top, open the box and the front panel. Take the machine out of the box (caution: it is heavy). Take out the accessories box and the glass which are under the bed and take out the glass out of the bubble.
1 – cut the cable-tie that holds the extruder
2 – install the PTFE guide
3 – install the spool holder
4 – install the glass on the bed
02 Bed calibration
Bed calibration is very important for the well functioning of your printer. The distance between the nozzle of the extruder and the glass must be the same at all point of the bed (≤ 0,2mm). The menu on the screen will guide you through this operation. You will need a sheet of paper to adjust the bed.
First, switch on the machine and touch the bed calibration symbol
1 – Bed calibration program
2 – Control the quality of the first layer with the help of this page
03 Filament charge
This chapter is about PLA filament. For other filaments, please consult the manufacturers.
First, on the home screen, touch the symbol with the spool
1 – Heat up the head
2 – Cleaning nozzle and pull out old filament
3 – Charge filament
04 Print test
To test the machine, go to the bed calibration menu and choose the last icon test print.
Set the temperature for your material (210-220°C for PLA°) and launch the test.
05 Prepare a 3D file with Realvision
To convert standard 3D models (.stl or .OBJ) to Fcode, you need to install Realvision slicer. The installation files are on the SD card (or the USB stick) delivered with the machine. You will need a license number which is also on the USB stick.
1 – Import a 3D file
2 – Rotate the object
3 – Scale the object
4 – Add support to the object
Maintenance and cleaning of the extruder
01 Clogged nozzle
The filament does not come out. The nozzle may be clogged. Heat up the nozzle at high temperature and try to push the filament with your hand. (video in french, translation soon)
02 Adapt the feeder to soft and flexible filament
Turn the knob to adjust the force exerted against the filament.
Maintenance and issues
01 Maintenance of the rail
Lubricate the rail with a product like Rubson’oil
when done, move the head with your hand, slowly, in every directions
02 Check the pulleys
Check if the 4 pulleys are well screwed
The TPFE guide or an electric wire can catch on the motor or on other elements
