Critical Info!

  • Do NOT use metal tools on the Bed
  • Avoid touching the plate with your fingers. skin oil can affect performances.
  • Only use Polyprinter brand filament reels

Checklist Before I Start

  • Make sure the bed is clean
  • Bend the filament to nearly 180 degrees; if it breaks easily, do NOT use; place in dessicator bin
  • Heat nozzle BEFORE inserting filament in extruder
  • Make sure the filament goes through the pulley at the top and that the pulley is closed.

Checklist When I'm done

  • Clean up the Bed with a soft spatula
  • Wait til parts have cooled before removing
  • Remove previous user's filament & parts;
 place them on the "Finished Jobs" shelf
  • Tuck filament end in to spool so it doesn’t snarl

How to make sure basic KISSlicers's profiles don't get overwritten

  1. Get clean profiles (either from a clean install or here).
  2. Replace the existing profile files (Normally situated here: C:\ProgramData\PolyPrinter\KISSlicer )
  3. Set the profile files to read-only
