Preparing the printer
Preparing the printer
Make sure that the printer is located in a temperature-stable area. It must be placed on a stable surface where no vibration from other machines could be transmitted onto this one (for example, where other printers are printing).
On the rear side of the printer, plug in the PSU cable.
Turn the power switch ON ("I" symbol).
Attaching the steel sheet
Attaching the steel sheet
Attach the sheet by first aligning the rear cutout with the locking pins on the back of the
heated bed.
Put the steel sheet on the magnetic heatbed.

After the printer starts up, the setup wizard will show up - requiring a self-test.
Although we inspect and test each printer before shipping, it is recommended to repeat the process once the printer is re-assembled.
Using the knob, select 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 obstructing the axes movement.
WARNING: Do not touch the printer during the self-test 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 X&Y axis test; all 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 up so that you can touch them. Click Continue.
Do not touch the nozzle yet, wait until prompted by the Tap nozzle NOW message.
Slightly tap the nozzle from below. No need to use an excessive force. In case the Loadcell does not detect the 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.
After you have prepared the filament, click YES.
Do not insert the filament into the side filament sensor and the tool head yet. If the side filament sensor is empty, click CONTINUE.

Now, insert the filament into the side filament sensor and keep pushing it in 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 in the footer (bottom bar) on the screen.
After both filament sensors are successfully calibrated and tested. Click CONTINUE.

In this step, we will make sure the Heatbed is installed correctly.
Using the T10 screwdriver, slightly loosen all screws on the sides of the bed-frame. A few turns are enough.
Visit the menu Control > Move Axis and adjust the Move Z value to the lowest position.
Leave the heatbed for a few seconds until it settles in the lowest position.
While in the lowest position, tighten all screws using the T10 screwdriver.
