NOTE: You can only load filament with the commands if the nozzle is on temperature above 170 degrees. This to prevent any cold extrusion damage.

NOTE:Please don’t use more than 5mm/s for manual extrusion!

Loading filament is the first step before you can start with 3D printing. It is recommended to use the spools of PLA that comes with your 3Dprinter. Take the filament out of the box and place it on the printer like the picture above. Watch the place where the filament wire is located on the spool! (Wire needs to go to printer on top of the spool)

loading filament 1

Insert the filament in the tube of the sensor and push it through the tube until you have enough at the other side to grab for loading filament.

loading filament 2

Put the filament wire through the black tube (some 3D printers have a white tube) in the middle of the elastic bands

loading filament 3

Insert the filament to the extruder tube and push/squeeze the extruder a little and push the filament through the extruder

Now click load filament on the LCD or web interface or manually push the filament to the hot end.

You need to load the material into the 3Dprinter, before you can start printing. It is recommended to use the spools of PLA that comes with your 3Dprinter. Take the filament out of the box and place it on the printer like the picture above. Watch the place where the filament wire is located on the spool!

loading filament 5

Put the filament wire inside the white tube on top of the printer.

loading filament 6

Push the black button on top of the printer to release the feeder motor and gently push the filament wire through the feeder unit.

You can only load filament with the commands if the nozzle is on temperature above 170 degrees. This is to prevent any cold extrusion damage.

Heat up the nozzle temperature before loading filament. Click on the nozzle icon on the LCD screen (it will become RED to show you it’s powered on). Click on the active selection box below the nozzle to set the temperature at 180 degrees (select temperature by clicking + until desired temperature is reached and click SET afterwards). You can also use the web interface to set the nozzle temperature

loading filament 7

Manually extrude a little bit to spool the filament completely through the nozzle. Click on the Extrude button and select 50mm and 5mm/s.
