Use

DO NOT SPRAY BED WITH HAIRSPRAY!

Before Printing

In order for prints to adhere properly the bed must be clean. Wipe it down with isopropyl alcohal (NOT acetone!) before a print to ensure that the bed is free of oils and dust.

Filament Change

  • Press the click wheel once for menu
  • Select preheat and choose the appropriate material
  • Once heated, press the click wheel for menu
  • Scroll down and choose 'Unload Filament'
  • Remove filament immediately
  • Insert new material and it should automatically load
    • If it doesn't load automatically, select 'Autoload Filament' from the menu and follow prompts

Print Removal

DO NOT USE SCRAPERS!

Lift the spring steel sheet off of the bed by the front corners. Gently flex the bed in both directions until the print loosens enough to be removed.
