Critical Info!

    • Avoid touching the plate with your fingers: skin oil can affect performances.

Checklist Before I Start

    • Make sure the bed is clean
    • Bend the filament to nearly 180 degrees; if it breaks easily, then it's brittle and should NOT be used. Place it in a dessicator bin to restore it.
    • Home the machine; check that the nozzle is not touching the bed.
    • Heat the nozzle BEFORE inserting filament in the extruder

Checklist When I'm done

    • Remove and Store the filament
    • Make sure the nozzle is cooling down
    • Clean up the Bed.
    • Remove the previous user's filament and parts and place them on the "Finished Jobs" shelf
