Note: For online printing, you need to connect computer to the 3D printer through the data cable. During the printing process, do not turn off the computer power, do not make computer screen save or hibernate to prevent data transmission failure. In general do not suggest users to use it for the complicated operations.
Firstly load model file, set printing parameter including "Basic" and "Advanced" parameters, then connect the 3D printer to PC.
