You are now ready for your first print to confirm the operation of your machine. Included with your machine are several sample filaments already preloaded. Make sure that you remove the zip ties holding the filament in place from shipping before sending any jobs. The filaments are:
- T3 - Sample of Ninjatek Ninjaflex or 85A filament
- T4 - Sample of Ninjatek Cheetah or 95A filament
- T5 - Sample of PETG or Ninjatek Armadillo
It is important to wipe down the bed surface before any print to remove any dust or debris that may be sitting on there. This will help with adhesion to the bed surface. For the Kapton surface, we recommend using acetone as a cleaning solution.
Under the "Gcode Files" tab you will see a file called diabase-multiprint-logo.gcode (an updated file will also be attached to this tutorial.) Click on the file to run the gcode:
Wait approximately one hour for the print to complete.
Squirt a little bit of acetone around the edges of the print and use the provided scraper to lift the edge, allowing acetone to move under the print with capillary action. Continue wedging the scraper underneath to gently remove the print from the bed.
Once the print has fully completed you will have finished your first 3D print on an H-Series Machine and your machine is fully set up.
