Calibration (before every job @ metalab)

  • There is a calibration sheet inside the witbox.

Load / Change Filament if neccessary - Careful not to entangle the filament!!

  • To change or unload the filament select the matching option from the menu
  • very gently apply some pull to the filament and you will feel that the filament is actually pulled for extraction first and after some seconds it is ejected
  • Once the filament is eject apply some more pullign force
  • when the filament comes loose pull sharply and remove the filament from the tube completely (also any long debris that might hang off the filament needs to get out)
