REMEMBER TO CHECK THESE PARAMETERS!
PREPARING THE MACHINES BEFORE USAGE IS IMPORTANT!!!
1. PRINTER
(a) HOME

Home all axis before starting point

(c) LOAD

When loading filament, cut filament at an angle, insert the filament end into slot, and turn the feeder until 1 inch can be seen. 

(b) GLUE

On Fusion3, clean old glue with water, scraper and paper towel before lying down new layer. Do Not Cake The Bed.

2. FILAMENT
(a) CHECK FOR OVERLAP

Check to see if the roll has a crossing filament. If yes, untangle.

(b) TAPE

When switching rolls, be sure to secure end by tape or holes.

3. LOADING
(a) WATERTIGHT MODEL 

Avoid open, zero-thickness models, non-manifold edges, self intersecting surfaces. Use Meshmixer or Netfab to fix the files.

(b) SCALE

1 mm thickness is minimum. More delicate and fine models are more likely to fail.

(a) WATERTIGHT MODEL 

Export to disk from Simplify3D (Fusion3) Print from USB (Makerbot)
