By clicking on the button 5 Move , a window appears allowing you to move the axes.

Note: the axes to be moved must have been initialized by a home previously, otherwise they will not move and an error message will be displayed.

By clicking on a particular file, you can access the file information and you can start printing by clicking on Print .

This tab is used to display the information during printing:

The baby step is an interesting function allowing to adjust the height of the Z in real time at the start of printing.

If, for example, we notice at the start of printing that the nozzle is a little too crushed on the plate, it is possible to move it aside slightly and vice versa if the head is too far from the plate.

To activate it, all you have to do is click on the Baby step button at the start of printing and make the adjustments:

  • The left button allows you to move the head closer to the plate (you don't crush anymore)
  • The right button allows you to move the head away from the plate (less crushing)

This tab allows you to control the printer directly via GCODES . All you have to do is type the commands on the keyboard and validate with Enter .

The Setup tab allows you to adjust the settings specific to the screen, brightness, colors, etc.

The settings are not detailed here.
