Manual for EI3 Printer
Dear customer, thank you for you order our product.
When you assemble the printer, Please refer to Youtube videos
If you have question about wiring , please refer this wiring diagram
when you finish building
we should test the printer:
at this step, we do not need the proximity switch.
that means, we use all the endstops.
connect your printer to your computer
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, Baud rate: 115200
Choose shape: (bed size according your own order)
And define the nozzle number
test movement of all axis
"Go home" cammand
then, test heat system
then, test extruder movement.
B how to print
1) What file
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.
(a) printer use one nozzle.
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.
(b) using two nozzles.
When you try to printer using two nozzles together.
That should be two parts of *.stl together.
So, the two nozzles could cooperate together.
Method like this:
Combine two parts of *.stl . (using slicer.exe, this file refer to the fileslink. )
Refer to pic below,(this is a part of whole pic, the whole picture refer to the attachment file. “dual-test-for beginer.jpg”)
The pic above is about how to combine two *.stl files to one object that printer will print.
Before you start print.
We should sett the two nozzle off set here
After Offset set up, and combined object, you can print that by two nozzles together.
about promixity switch.
at first, we should get the holder file. ( you can download or get it from our facebook group file, --refer to end of manual )
print this file
Fan to install a-EI3-dual--sensor holder.stl
Then, you can mount the promixity switch on it. (below is for single nozzle, but dual nozzle promixity switch position is similar)
After all these process, we could officially, use this printer now!
Enjoy your printing!
Thank you !
