This chapter shows a brief description of the wizard. Please note that the screenshots are illustrative and might differ from those in the firmware.
Make sure you are running Firmware 5.1.2 or newer
Some parts of the wizard must be done multiple times, this depends on the number of tool-heads. For example:
Dock Calibration
Loadcell calibration
Filament sensor calibration
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").
Nozzle seal height calibration
Nozzle seal height calibration
Nozzle seal height calibration
On the Nozzle seal heigh calibration steps were used docked Nextruder without the printer for better visibility, proceed next steps on your printer. Do not dismantle the docks.
In the next step, we'll calibrate the height of the nozzle seal.
Using the 2.5 mm Allen key, tighten or untighten the M3x30 screw to calibrate the height of the nozzle seal.
Proceed to the next step.
Nozzle seal height calibration
Nozzle seal height calibration
Nozzle seal height calibration
Nozzle seal height calibration
If is the Nozzle seal too low or too high, we need to reposition its height.
Using a 2.5 mm Allen key:
Turn the M3x30 screw clockwise to set the Nozzle seal lower.
Turn the M3x30 screw counterclockwise to set the Nozzle seal higher.
The correct position of the Nozzle seal is, that the Nozzle seal isn't bent and it is touching the nozzle.

After the printer starts up, the screen prompts for the printer test and setup wizard.
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 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.
Wizard: Calibrate Filament Sensors
Wizard: Calibrate Filament Sensors
Wizard: Calibrate Filament Sensors
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.
Wait for the printer to prompt you to insert the filament into the side filament sensor.

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.
According to the number of print heads, the filament sensor calibration is repeated.

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.

Regular printer maintenance
To keep your printer working properly over time, it is highly recommended to do regular maintenance.
For regular printer maintenance, follow the Regular printer maintenance (XL) article for information and instructions.
On multi-tool printers, it is necessary to focus on lubricating the coupler pins of the ToolHeads.
Lubricating the coupler pins can be made along with the rest of the maintenance, or it can also be done if you notice that your prints have banding or ringing issues.
To lubricate the coupler pins use our dedicated online guide How to lubricate the coupler pins on Original Prusa XL.
You will need to print an applicator to lubricate the pins. Please refer to the dedicated guide for more information.
