Remove the Extreme from the pallet
After unboxing the Builder Extreme, make sure you remove the Extreme from the pallet and place it on a levelled concrete floor. Do not print while the Extreme is on the pallet.
Level the Extreme
Use the 2 yellow tools to make sure the machine is levelled before use. Use the level tools on the front, left and right.
Insert filament in BOTH extruders. Note that the Dual-Feed extruder needs to be filled with BOTH filaments all the time, even when you print in 1 color. This prevents the Dual-Feed extruder from clogging.
Start the surface test print
Start printing the surface test from the SD card. The surface test (0.4 mm nozzle) shows you if the build plate is still levelled. The build plate was already levelled in the factory before shipping.
Level point 1, 2 and 3 (only if needed)
If the surface test does not come out right (filament does not stick to the bed), you might need to level the frame on point 1, 2 and 3. Gently turn the screws clockwise on all 3 points and start the surfcase test again.
Pre-heat the Builder Extreme
Use the pre-heat option (close Extreme doors) and make sure you pre-heat the Builder Extreme for 15 minutes before starting your first large 3D print. Pre-heating makes sure the adhesion of your object is better, especially in the winter.
Remove print from glass plate
After the print has finished, open the doors of the Extreme and let the build plate cool down for about 25 minutes. This makes it easier for you to remove the object from the glass plate.
Remove print head for maintenance
After hundreds of hours of printing it might be possible that the print head is in need of some maintenance/cleaning. Take out the print head as showed in the video and click it back in place. NOTE: please press the emergency button first before removing the head.
