Alfawise U20 3D printer commissioning guide

By  Steve Lowry 2018-05-18 10016 0

Before the formal printing, it is necessary to conduct unilateral debugging of manual operation to test the operation of all parts. In the previous step, the problem of assembly and connection caused by negligence can be tested and solved in the step-by-step debugging.



In general, you need to test the following functions:


1. The three-axis motor operates correctly in the right direction, toward the micro switch (limit switch) motion is "negative" direction.


2. The nozzle and hot bed heating operate normally, can reach a predetermined temperature and control is stable.


3. The extrusion head motor operates correctly in the right direction; (Note that the extrusion head needs to reach 190 °C, then the motor can be exercised).


4. Adjust the Z-axis limit switch screw to make the initial distance between the nozzle and the heating plate suitable. (Like a piece of A4 paper).


NOTE: Single-step debugging integrates software, hardware and machinery, and coordinates the work of the whole mechanical system. If you have any problems in the debugging process, please read the Alfawise U20 user manual carefully.
