Make sure you are running Firmware 5.1.2 or newer
Preparing the printer
Preparing the printer
Make sure that the printer is placed in a stable place where no ambient vibrations are transmitted (for example, where other printers are printing).
From the rear side of the printer, plug in the PSU cable.
Turn the power switch ON (symbol "I").

After the printer starts up, the screen prompts for the printer test and setup wizard.
Although we inspect and test every printer before shipping, it is recommended to repeat the process once the printer is assembled.
Using the knob, click on CONTINUE.
The wizard will test all important components of the printer. The whole process takes a few minutes. Some parts of the wizard require direct user interaction. Follow the instruction on the screen.
NOTE: While testing the axes, make sure that there is nothing in the printer that is obstructing the movement of the axes.
WARNING: Do not touch the printer during the wizard unless prompted! Some parts of the printer may be HOT and moving at high speed.
The wizard starts with the fan check, Z-axis alignment and the test of the XY axes, which is fully automatic.

The next step of the wizard will prompt you to touch the nozzle to test and calibrate the Loadcell. During this procedure, the parts of the printer are not heated, you can touch the parts of the printer. Click on Continue.
Do not touch the nozzle yet, wait until prompted with the message: Tap the nozzle NOW.
Slightly tap the nozzle. No need to use extra force. In case the Loadcell does not detect enough touch, you will be prompted to repeat the step. Otherwise, you will see Loadcell test passed OK when it succeeds.

During the calibration of the filament sensors, you will be prompted to use at least 130 cm of filament. Hint: Use the Prusament shipped with your printer and hang it directly on the spool holder.
When you have prepared the filament, click on YES.
Do not insert the filament into the side filament sensor and the tool head. If the side filament sensor is empty, click on CONTINUE.

Now, insert the filament into the side filament sensor and push it until it reaches the filament sensor in the extruder (you will feel a slight resistance).
You can check the side filament sensor (left) and extruder filament sensor (right) status on the bottom bar on the screen.
Both filament sensors are successfully calibrated and tested. Click on CONTINUE.
