    • Your machine was fully assembled, calibrated and printed successfully before it left our factory. We have done some things to make sure the machine does not get damaged while shipping the printer. Please complete the following steps

    • Carefully remove all shrink wrap from the printer. Be careful not to cut the machine if you are using a knife.

    • The arms have been inverted to prevent the hot end nozzle from striking the glass print surface during shipping. To invert the arms from shipping position to printing position, place your hand on ONE of the carriages and slowly move this carriage upward toward the top of the printer.

    • Next select one of the two remaining carriages and repeat.

    • Do the same operation with the final carriage.

    • Remove the BLUE calibration print from the print bed. (we leave that on there for you to see that your printer has been calibrated and printed on and is ready for printing)

  2. The spool holder has been removed from the machine and you will need to reinstall it. Locate the spool holder and insert the 3 nylon lock nuts as shown in the second image.
    • The spool holder has been removed from the machine and you will need to reinstall it. Locate the spool holder and insert the 3 nylon lock nuts as shown in the second image.

    • Finally, position the spool holder on the top of the machine as shown in the third image. Use the (3) 6-32 x 1” machine screws to secure the spool holder to the top plate.

    • Install the spool holder arms as shown in the image.

    • Install the AC power cord

    • Install the USB cable (Note: the front left piece of acrylic has been removed in the image to make the location of the USB port more easily recognized. You can easily gain access to this location by removing the front LCD Controller Module. This module is fastened to the machine with (2) nylon thumb screws.)
