Note: Adjust the voltage properly according to your region before plugging in the power cord, and turn on the machine only after the voltage is correct.

Auto Leveling

Note: Remove the material before leveling (ignore if no consumables are loaded) to ensure that the nozzle is free of residue, and then restore the factory settings (reset all parameter values). (Assemble (Installation) & Tutorial Video: watch it in the Assembly (Installation) & Tutorial Video → folder of the supplied in the data memory card)

  1. Click the knob to enter the Main interface: first enter Configuration menu →Restore Defaults, and then back to Main menu and enter Motion menu → click Level Bed
    Default: the printer automatically returns to the home position for auto-calibration of 16 points and returns to the home position again, and then the leveling is complete.
    B07D218NX3 Ender-3 E 3D Printer - fig16
  2. Enter the Main menu → click Motion → click Probe Z Offset → adjust Probe Z Offset, make sure the distance between nozzle and platform is about the thickness of an A4 sheet of paper → click Store Settings

B07D218NX3 Ender-3 E 3D Printer - fig19 B07D218NX3 Ender-3 E 3D Printer - iconThe nozzle is too far away from the platform, and the filaments cannot stick to the platform.
B07D218NX3 Ender-3 E 3D Printer - fig20 B07D218NX3 Ender-3 E 3D Printer - icon3The filament is evenly extruded and sticks to the platform just right.
B07D218NX3 Ender-3 E 3D Printer - fig21 The nozzle is too close to the platform, and the filament is not extruded enough, which may damage the platform.

Loading the Filament

A.In order to successfully load the filament, please trim the end of the filament at an angle of 45 degrees.
B.Press the filament until it passes through the filament detection hole. Then press and hold the extruder handle to insert the filament into the Teflon tube until it reaches the nozzle.
C.Warm up the nozzle. If the filament flows out of the nozzle when the temperature reaches the target value, the filament is properly loaded.

Attation Replacing the filament:

  1. When the printer is not printing:
    A. Heat the nozzle to 185℃ or higher, and wait for the filament in the nozzle to soften. Then press and hold the extrusion handle to quickly extract the filament to prevent it from clogging in the heat break.
    B. Place the new filament onto the rack and repeat the steps in Section 7: Loading the Filament.
  2. When the printer is printing:
    A. Pause the printing. After the printer stops, press and hold the extrusion handle and quickly extract the filament to prevent it from clogging in the heat break.
    B. Place the new filament onto the rack and press it through the filament detector. Press and hold the extrusion handle to insert the filament into the nozzle. Then push the filament to squeeze out the residual filament in the nozzle and clean up the nozzle before resuming printing.

Start Printing

Before printing, please check the printer again by following these steps:
When the printer is powered off:

  1. The nozzle is tightly connected and moves smoothly to the left and right.
  2. The X axis is horizontal and stable (not wobbling up or down), and it moves run smoothly up and down.
  3. The Y axis is tightly connected. The platform does not shake and moves back and forth smoothly.
  4. The filament rack does not shake. The rollers are smooth. The filament extrusion is smooth.

When the printer is powered on:

  1. The screen display and knob work properly. The movements of the X, Y, and Z axes are smooth.
  2. The nozzle and hotbed heat up properly.
  3. The feed and return of the filament work properly.
