After powering on the printer, touch the display to start.
CAUTION: When navigating the touchscreen display, use only light finger pressure to make selections. Using anything sharp will damage the touchscreen display and will void the manufacturer’s warranty.
NOTE: You may press and release the button next to the touchscreen display to return to the PRINT / SETUP menu.
Print / Setup
PRINT allows the user to print a creation stored either on a USB mass storage device or directly from Cubify software. You can invent your own creation using Cubify Invent software available at www.3dsystems.com/shop.
SETUP allows the user to configure the printer, connect to a wireless or ad hoc network, connect to a Bluetooth device, install cartridges, and view the printer status.
Navigation between screens is performed by pressing the right or left arrows.
CARTRIDGE STATUS allows you to view the type and color of the material that is installed. It also displays the estimated amount of material left in the cartridge.
Selecting CHANGE CARTRIDGE allows you to install cartridges in empty bays or replace installed cartridges.
Print Plate Calibration
AUTO LEVEL is an automated procedure that measures the level of the print pad. If the print pad is found to be out of specification, the touchscreen will prompt the user to use the adjustment screws to level the print pad.
Following AUTO LEVEL, AUTO GAP is an automated procedure that measures the distance between the print pad and the print jets. If the gap is out of specification, the user can perform the Manual Gap procedure.
CALIBRATE is a utility that allows you to finely tune your gap settings. When Level Gap, Auto Gap and Manual Gap have been successful but the bottom layer of your print appears stringy and not tightly fused together, your printer should be calibrated.
Print Jet Calibration
PURGE JETS is a utility that enables you to test the extrusion functionality and can assist in unblocking print jets.
The Network screen provides a utility to connect the printer to a wireless network.
Wireless connections include:
TEST PRINT is a feature that allows you to perform a test print which is saved in the printer. This Test Print is the same Welcome Message test print that is printed when first setting up and activating your printer.
CUBE NAME is a utility that allows you to change the name of your printer.
SELECT LANGUAGE allows you to localize the printer to your language.
The LIGHT icon allows you to turn on or off the system LEDs.
Selecting FIRMWARE allows you to update the printer firmware either with a file downloaded to a USB mass storage device or by wireless connection.
By selecting INFO, the printer will display the printer status.
