Filament loading

Start the filament loading
  1. Make sure the filament feeder tube is fixed in the printhead holder.
  2. Select «Filament > Load filament» on the menu.
  3. Select the material profile specific to the filament to feed in and press «OK».

The printer starts the algorithm for heating the nozzle up to the operating temperature specific to settings of the selected profile. As soon as the printer is brought to the right temperature, the printhead moves to the filament load position. The message about readiness for load is displayed on the screen.

Do not interfere with movements of the 3D printer mechanisms during the operation: this can result in personal injury or damage to the device.

Do not touch the nozzle or the platform during the operation: they heat up to high temperatures. Touching them may result in a burn.

Place a material spool into your printer

Unpack the spool. The filament end is under the sticker. Please make sure the filament end is not deformed. Otherwise, cut part of the filament with the pliers available in your starter kit.

Remove the side door at the left side of the printer and place the spool with the central hole on the holder. Remove the sticker and insert the filament into the filament feeder tube.

Use only 100 mm wide spools.

Always hold and fix the filament end while installing and removing the spool into/out of the printer. Prevent filament tangling in the spool: it may cause an abnormal stop during printing and damage the printer.

Load the filament into the printhead
Push the filament through the tube until it appears at the printhead side. Return the side door to its place.

Insert the filament end into the extruder hole until it stops. Hold the filament until you feel it is fed in. As soon as the filament availability is detected by the end-of-filament sensor, the load algorithm starts. Progress will be displayed on the screen. The operation will take approximately one minute.

Finish the filament loading
When the load is completed, a small amount of filament comes out of the nozzle. Remove it carefully from the build plate.

Insert the feeder tube into the print head hole until it stops. Press the joystick. The printhead moves to the parking position: the far-left corner. The filament loading is completed.
