- Beware of Pinch Points.
- The heated bed gets hot.
- The nozzle gets hot too.
Prior to each use
- X and Y belts are taut
- Filament loaded properly
- Print surface prepped: (PET with ABS solution for ABS printing/Bare glass for PLA/Garolite or cellulose based material for Nylon)
- Home all axes prior to using the manual movement controls
After each use
- Clean bed of any left over filament.
- If using personal filament reload the space filament and prime the nozzle by bringing it to temp and verifying extrusion.
- Home all axes
- Power off the printer using the power switch on the left hand side of the printer (for now)
