  1. Before you power on the printer.
    • Before you power on the printer.

    • Push-in to release the micro SD card. In the picture, our fingernail was used to push in to release the micro SD card. It will spring out once released. You can also use something like a small flat blade screwdriver.

  2. You will need a Micro SD card adapter. Either a usb adapter to read the card directly, or a micro to standard SD card adapter and a SD card slot on your computer.
    • You will need a Micro SD card adapter. Either a usb adapter to read the card directly, or a micro to standard SD card adapter and a SD card slot on your computer.

    • An example is shown. They come in many varieties. They need to accommodate a micro SD card.

  3. Create a folder on your computer called "SeeMeCNC SD Card Files". Copy the micro SD controller content to this backup folder on your computer. As seen in Pic 1 In that folder, you should now have 4 folders:  gcodes, macros, sys, and www.  Go into the sys folder.  As seen in Pic 2 Edit config.g in a text editor.  In Pic 3, I used Notepad++ to edit the file.

    • Edit config.g in a text editor. In Pic 3, I used Notepad++ to edit the file.

  4. You will be editing 2 lines.  In the pic they are the network configuration and enable wifi lines.
    • You will be editing 2 lines. In the pic they are the network configuration and enable wifi lines.

    • You will replace Network ID that is in quotes with the name of your network (case sensitive) and make sure it stays in the quotation marks. Also change the Network Password with the password for your network.

    • You will then remove the comment from both lines. This is the semicolon at the beginning of each line. Removing the semicolon will allow the config to not ignore those lines.

    • If your config.g does not have the 3 lines shown, add them where shown. You will add the following 3 lines:

    • M587 S"Network SSID" P"Network Password"

    • G4 S3

    • M552 S1

    • Save this file and exit the editor.

  5. Once the config.g is saved and the editor is closed, you will copy back the contents of your SeeMeCNC SD Card Files folder back to the SD card.
    • Once the config.g is saved and the editor is closed, you will copy back the contents of your SeeMeCNC SD Card Files folder back to the SD card.

    • You will get a popup to replace the files in the desination. Choose to replace the files so the updated file replaces the file on the card.

    • Eject the SD card and replace the micro SD back to the machine. Push in the SD card until it locks into place.

  6. Set the printer on a sold surface. Plug in power, reset the e-stop if you have a Boss Delta, and turn the machine on.
    • Set the printer on a sold surface. Plug in power, reset the e-stop if you have a Boss Delta, and turn the machine on.

    • If you have the LCD screen, you may see a popup saying WiFi started, and a message with the IP address of your machine. You can type this IP address into a web browser in a computer that is on the same network to connect to the printer.

    • To check and make sure the machine connected to the WiFi, you can look at the clear window where you accessed the SD card.

    • The WiFi module is located to the right of the SD card. It has a blue LED on it to indicate WiFi status. This light will flash while connecting to WiFi.

    • When the LED turns on solid, the machine is connected to WiFi.

    • With the printer on and WiFi address assigned, you can now "open" your printer from any computer, even your phone, on your internal network.

    • Open a New Tab on your browser and you can access the printer via either of these two methods:

    • Enter the IP address of the printer directly into the address bar of the browser (example: 192.168.0.xxx)

    • Or enter the printer name.

    • For the Boss Delta, you can go to Boss.local/

    • For the Artemis, you can go to Artemis.local/

    • For the Rostock Max V4, you can go to RMAXV4.local/

    • For the Rostock Max V3.2, you can go to RMAXV32.local/

    • You should see a browser window like the picture here. If you do not, check your username and password entered into the NETWORK file (start back at step 1).

    • The machine control window on a browser provides much more information than the touchscreen.

    • This step is described at the printer touchscreen. However you can also run these from your computer browser control window.

    • Make sure the nozzle and glass print bed are clean.

    • At the bottom of the touchscreen, select "Macro"

    • Run the macro titled "Probe Autolevel" to level your printer. The printer will warm the print bed to 70C, then drop down and probe the glass using the nozzle.

    • Once finished, a report on the "Console" screen will show the bed deviation in mm units. A BOSSdelta usually calibrates flatness within 0.1mm.

    • When Probe Autolevel finishes calibrating the surface, you're ready to print.

    • Follow our Cura 3.4.1 setup guide.

    • For the Boss Delta, load XST SE300 hotend slicing profiles. The BOSSdelta has a slightly larger heater block and nozzle length.

    • Once you save a gcode file on your computer, upload it through the browser window to the printer.

    • Here a link to our Quick Start bed adhesion guide.

    • The print job can be run from the computer browser window or the machines touchscreen.

    • At the printers touchscreen, choose the Control window, then push the icon representing an SD card. Your files are displayed, simply touch the file you want to print.

    • The printer will begin heating the bed, then hotend, and automatically drop down and start printing.

Finish Line
