IMPORTANT: The XL printer is large and it is almost impossible to have the entire body in every single picture. Throughout the manual, there will used terms to describe the side you will be working on:
Front side - the location featuring the xLCD screen.
Left side - identifiable by the safety sticker positioned along its edge.
Right side - in contrast to the left side, lacks a safety sticker.
Rear side - the remaining section housing the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

Prepare your desk

Tidy up your desk! Tidying up decreases the probability of losing small parts.
Clear your workspace. Make sure you have enough room. A nice clear flat workbench will get you the results you are aiming for.
Let there be light! Make sure you are in a well-lit environment. Another lamp or even an extra flashlight will probably come in handy.
Prepare something to contain the plastic bags and the removed packing materials so you can recycle them afterwards. Make sure there are no important parts being discarded.

Plug the printer into the wall outlet and turn it ON.
If you have loaded the filament, unload it from the hotend.
Multi-tool -> Unload all filaments. On the screen, navigate to Filament -> Unload Filament and select the tool-head.
Remove the filament from the PTFE tube. It is necessary to completely remove it from the printer.
WARNING: The hotend and heatbed are very HOT. Do not touch these parts!!!
Move the Z-axis down. On the screen, navigate to Control -> Move axis -> Move Z. Leave the Z-axis at least 10cm above the bottom panel.
