Your BoXZY is always ready for Milling when there is no Attachment Head plugged into the Attachment Mount. In this state the temperature should read -27C. Please verify this by looking at the temperature reading in the Manual Control tab as shown by the red arrow in the first image.

There is a log at the bottom of the screen that is visible when you select Toggle Log. If it is not visible, click the button shown by the blue arrow in the third image to select it.

Plug the cable marked "quick-change head" into the 3D Printing Head, as seen in the second image. Pink arrows indicate where the cable plugs in.

When plugging your cable in, be sure you have the plugs squarely aligned, as you did with the Attachment Mount and limit switch during your first setup.

Be aware off the quick-change head and limit switch cables when using BoXZY. They can easily fall over and catch on one of BoXZY’s corners while in use. To avoid this, you can zip tie them together or 3D print a cable guide for BoXZY by following this link.

This is the connection you should use to plug in or disconnect your Attachment Heads. Leave the cable plugged into the machine, but make sure it's out of the way while you work.

The log should say "3D printer head detected" when you plug in the 3D Printing Head and "Milling head detected" when you remove it. If you missed it, watch it as you disconnect and reconnect the harness. The temperature should now show between 20-30C if the nozzle is at room temperature.

Never unplug the harness while the 3D Printing Head is heating or the fan is running.
