Print via USB Drive

If the printer is not on a network, you will need to send print jobs via a USB device. This section assumes you have prepared the build file in 3D Sprint and transferred the file to the USB device.

NOTE: The printer will only hold one build file at a time in its memory. If you try to load another build file from the USB device, it will overwrite the most-recent build file written to the machine. Once the printer begins printing, you will not be able to submit any print jobs via 3D Sprint or via USB.

  1. If the printer detects build files, you will see a message like the one at the right on the printer screen, with your build file's name on the first line. If the filename is longer than 20 characters, it will scroll across the screen to show you the complete name. At this point:
    1. Hold down the power button to load this build file on the printer's memory.
    2. Press the power button to skip over this build file and look for the next file on the USB device. Repeat this process until you have found the print job you wish to submit. Hold down the power button to submit the print job.

NOTE: The maximum storage the printer has for build files is 1GB.
