[title] Load and Print your Test Print
[* icon_note] Prior to getting the "Slicing" software involved, we want to test that the physical machine is functioning properly as a unit. We will do this by running a pre-sliced print file.
[* icon_reminder] The 3D Printing Attachment ''should be ''installed from your earlier leveling process. '''Anytime''' you remove the 3D Print Attachment you must Home the Z axis '''before''' reinstalling. When reinstalling place a business card between the nozzle and the platform before clamping it in place.
[* icon_note] The gap the business card creates will be your first layer printing height. You can use shims of varying thickness in place of the business card for fine tuning. The current settings are for the thickness of the card when the nozzle creates a light groove.
[* black] Download the Gcode we have provided at [|this] link
[* red] Load the Gcode by selecting the Load button in your BoXZY Interface and locating the downloaded Test Print
[* blue] Select the '''Start Print''' button in your BoXZY Interface and watch it print!
[* icon_reminder] You've just completed your first print!
