Installing A Material Cartridge

Before the printer will print a creation, the correct type of cartridge(s) must be installed in the printer. If the printer recognizes that no cartridge has been installed, the display will prompt you to install the appropriate cartridge.

  1. Select CHANGE CARTRIDGE from the SETUP menu.

  1. Select the cartridge to be installed.


NOTE: The print jet will begin to heat.


  1. Open the packaging and remove the thumbscrew from the new cartridge. Select the checkmark to continue.

  1. Pull out 12”/30 cm of material from the cartridge. Select the checkmark to continue.

  1. Cut off 2”/5 cm of material from the end. Select the checkmark to continue.

NOTE: Ensure the material is not bent or creased. If the material is not straight, pull out the damaged material from the cartridge. Cut off and dispose the portion that is not straight.

  1. Insert the material under the clamp roller and into the material tube. Select the checkmark to continue.

  1. Gently push the print material into the print jet until print material extrudes into the jet wiper. Select the checkmark to continue.

NOTE: When the material reaches far enough into the print jet area, a motor will assist with feeding the material into the print jet.

NOTE: Ensure the front of the cartridge (A) where the material exits is seated under the clamp roller and between the vertical alignment pins in the cartridge bay.
