Once you've received your Cubicon Style 3D printer you can get ready to unbox and set up your new machine! Follow the steps and videos below to ensure your printer is set up correctly.
Step 1: Unbox and Remove Packaging
The first step to setting up your Single Plus 3D printer is to take the machine out of the box and remove all external and internal packaging. After all the packaging has been removed you can plug in and turn on the machine. The power button is located on the backside of the printer.
Step 2: Loading Filament
Once you have your Single Plus printer plugged in and turned on you're ready to load your filament. Your 3D printer will come with a filament holder adapter which can be slid in place, overtop of the existing filament holder, on the right side of the printer. Rest the roll of filament on the holder with the filament threading out from the top side of the roll, rather than from the bottom.
After your filament is in position, you can thread the clean-cut end through the filament hole located on the back of the printer. Keep pushing the filament through until it comes out the end of the plastic bowden tube, about 4-5 inches. Insert the clean-cut end of the filament into the hole on the top of the extruder, you should be able to push the filament down a good 4-5 inches.
Step 3: Install Filter
To install your HEPA/Carbon filter, unwrap it from the plastic covering, and place it in the plastic filter insert located on the front of your printer. Be sure to line up the directional arrows so your filter is pointing in the right direction.
Step 4: Starting a Print
To start a print, insert your USB card with a sliced .hvs file into the SD card slot on the side of the printer. On the control screen, select the 'File' button, then select 'USB' and lastly, choose the file you wish to print and hit 'Start'. The printer will begin to heat up, followed by the automatic leveling cycle.
Step 5: Removing a Print
R emoving prints is very easy with the Cubicon heated and coated bed. Once the print is finished, allow the bed and print to cool down. Once cooled, simply remove the print by hand, or use the print removal tool. If you're having difficulty removing a print, allow some more time for it to cool down.
