Dear customer, thank you for you order our product.
When you assemble the printer, Please refer to Youtube videos
[there are two corrections in this video: mention this please.
If you have question about wiring , please refer this wiring diagram
NEXT : testing the printer
when you finish building, we should test this printer
setupRepetierHost_1_5_4.exe (refer to the file link)
connect your printer to computer.
COM number according to your own number. (refer to pic below)
COM number according to your own number
Testing2 test movement of all axis
"Go home" cammand
Testing3 test heating system
Testing4 test extruder movement.(when nozzle temperature above 180)
NEXT : Calibration
After all testing process, we could calibrate the printer now.
At first, put on the z-probe [touch sensor or soft socket]
Then, we could command “G29”
It will hit three points on the plate
Then, give three values ( example pic below )
Calculation and do the following
1) Re define the maxium height.
“Gohome” command , let the nozzle at the highest position,
Descending the nozzle, until it reach the plate, then, read the value of the nozzle actually travelled.
Then , change the original value.
NEXT : Start to print
the file that the printer could print is *.gcode.
and *.stl could convert to *.gcode
so, if you want to print some model.
you should have a *.stl file.
then. we use software convert it to gcode.
we take the repetier as an example.
Refer to pic below
you can choose slicing software. (here , we use slice3r)
After this. We can slice a *.stl file now
Then, we can print now
Tip: when you print, the distance between nozzle and plate should be 0.3mm or so, if the distance is too big, the structure would be loose too, the total shape would be effected.
After all these process, we could officially, use this printer now!
Enjoy your printing!
Thank you !
