Manual for K200 Printer
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
when you finish building, we should test this printer
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
Define two extruders
test movement of all axis
"Go home" cammand
then, test heat system
then, test extruder movement.(when nozzle temperature above 180)
After all testing process, we could calibrate the printer now.
At first, put on the z-probe [touch sensor or soft socket]
Change the nozzle which z-probe sensor covered to a host nozzle
Then, we could command “G29”
It will hit three points on the plate
Then, give three values ( example pic below )
2) 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.
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) printer use two nozzle.
When you try to printer using two nozzles together.
That should be two parts of *.stl together.
So, the two nozzle 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 file to one object that printer will print.
Before you start print.
We should sett the two nozzle off set here
After these two process, dual printer could print a (two colors, or two material ) object.
Enjoy your printing!
Thank you !
