Quick Guide on How to Use 3D Gence One

Before you read this post, we would like you to know that this is a guidepost for the 64 pages of “USER MANUAL of 3DGENCE ONE PRINTER, manual version 01.2018″ which you can download from [Click here!]. This post is organized in such a way that if you see (I.2,5-6) then that means referring “Section 2 of Chapter I at page number 5 to 6 in the manual”.

Overview

  • Model: 2017 3DGENCE ONE
  • Power Supply: 230 V/50Hz socket
  • Filament (I.2,5-6): FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication Technology) with 1.75mm diameter, with a tolerance of +/- 0.05mm
  • Printing Temperature: at extruder zone and hot end* are 265C, and at heat bed** zone is 160C
  • Maximum Temperature: above 265C, strongly suggest not to exceed 265C
  • Safety Measures: (I.4,7-11), it is mandatory to read
  • Components of Printer: (II.1,12-15)
  • Equipment for Printer: (II.2,15-17)
  • User Interface (buttons & LCD display): (II.3,17-24)

* Heat end means the tip where melted filament coming out because of pushing by the extruder.
** Heat bed means the top layer of the heated table.

INSTRUCTIONS

INSERTING FILAMENT INSIDE THE EXTRUDER
  1. First make sure the filament is not dirty, broken, bent, or tangled on the spool, and the heated table is clean (no items or leftover prints). Use the spatula to remove printouts or scraps.
  2. Switch ON the 3D printer
  3. Click “OK” button -> Select “Prepare” -> Select “Load Filament”
  4. Push the Extruder lever down
  5. Insert the filament
TAKE OUT FILAMENT FROM THE EXTRUDER
  1. Switch ON the 3D printer
  2. Click “OK” button -> Select “Prepare” -> Select “Unload Filament”
  3. Push the Extruder lever down
  4. Pull the filament out
PRINT THE 3D OBJECT
  1. Create your 3D object and convert into .stl file extension
  2. Use 3DGence Slicer software to convert the .stl file into .gcode file extension. Because 3D printer firmware only reads the G-code.
  3. Go to step 3.1 or 3.2 (Option is yours!)
    • Printing the 3D object from the file that is saved in SD card, follow (IV.1,31)
    • Printing the 3D object using the 3DGENCE Slicer software, follow (V,33-51)
  4. Remove the printout from the heated table, follow (VI.1,52)
  5. Clean the heated table, follow (VI.2,52-53)
  6. Switch OFF the printer

Congratulation! You know a rough idea of how you should use the 3D Gence One printer. We invite you to visit our office at F-1-06 in the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy, and Applied Computer Science, Jagiellonian University and play with the 3D Gence One printer.
