Select Settings > Printer Settings > 3D Print Setup to open the 3D Print Setup dialog. Most users will not need to change the settings in this dialog, but should you need to, do the following:

  • To change Printers, choose Select Printer. Choose a connection option and then select the Find button to browse for the printer that is connected to your computer.
  • To change the Powder Type and Layer Thickness, open the drop-down list for each. The powder types listed are those that are available for the printer displayed in the Printer field.
  • Ensure the Bleed Compensation option is checked (available on ProJet® 460Plus, 660Pro and 860Pro). This option is checked by default for the ProJet® 460Plus, 660Pro and 860Pro. See Section 8.4 “Bleed Compensation Overview” for additional information.
