[* orange] '''Remove''' your ''3D Printing HeadAttachment'' from the white box marked '''3D Printing''',Printing''.' Always use the handle at the top of the 3D Printing Head when handlingusing the attachment.
[* icon_reminder] The Leveling Procedure will ask you to use a Businessbusiness card to level your platform. If this is your very first time leveling the platform follow the guide using a very thick, flat piece of cardboard in place of the business card. Then repeat the leveling process with the business card. This eliminates the risk of crashing your nozzle during leveling
