Preparation

Kindly read the instruction of accessories in advance.

Confirm that the connector of the toolhead is facing the front side of the machine. The cable should not be twisted and should be smoothly arranged then plugged. Also check if the balls are lubricated. 

Follow the tutorial to load filament. If you are not in the tutorial mode, you can use Device > [ Your Delta name ] > Change Filament to open the tool dialog.

 Troubleshooting: Printing toolhead won't heat and stops at 20° C

Operation Steps

STEP 1 : 

Make sure you're using the face without grid ( the grid is for laser ), apply glue stick with 3 - 4 layers and wait till it's dry. Drying the glue please refer to (link)

STEP 2 :

If you were not using tutorial, drag STL into FLUX Studio, then click start. Otherwise, follow the tutorial.

STEP 3 :

Right after you started, your printhead will start heating to 170C, and after heating, FLUX Delta will start the auto-calibration process.

When the leveling is done, the printhead will heat a little bit, and the real print get started, first layer is always the key process. Make sure the printed object is attached on the base plate, and not dragged by the printhead.

STEP 4:

If the first layer is attached well, you can leave the Delta printing and your computer turned off. Watch an episode of House of Cards on Netflix and your first object will be done.
