Remove the filament from the packaging.

Set the filament spool on the spool holder arms with the filament coming off of the top of the spool.

Route the filament through the two guides in the back of the printer.

Bring the filament to the bottom of the extruder. The extruder is the part on the side of the printer with the blue "star"

Observe the filament path on the bottom of the extruder. While pressing the red release lever with your first finger and thumb, insert the filament into that path and feed it upwards until you see it appear in the bowden tube (clear tube).

Continue feeding the filament up through the bowden tube (clear tube) until you see it reach the hot end. You can feed filament by either turning the blue stepper motor knob, or by pressing the red lever and manually feeding the it.
