[title] Checking your Printer Settings
[* icon_reminder] Before you Print a 3D Model, you should check your Slicer Configuration Presets. The "Slicer" is the program that produces a Gcode script based on your 3D model
[* red] Following the first image, select the Slicer tab in your BoXZY Interface. Verify that Slicer is set to '''"Slic3r"''' and that Print and Printer Settings are set to BoXZY
[* red] Select Extruder 1 and verify the BoXZY PLA profile is selected
[* green] Now select the Slicer tab in your BoXZY Interface and verify that the Slicer is set to CuraEngine and that the Print Configuration is set to BoXZY
[* green] Select Extruder 1 and verify that the BoXZY PLA profile is selected
[* icon_note] Slic3r and Cura are two different programs for the same task. You choose the one you want. The BoXZY team recommends "Slic3r", it takes longer but produces better surface quality.
[* icon_reminder] Only experienced users should make changes to the profile settings. Before making any configuration changes always export the BoXZY profiles so you can revert to working versions. It is fairly easy to create completely non working profiles.
