FIRST PRINT with DeltaWASP

GCODE CREATION

Be sure that the 3d model presents the following caratteristics:
– closed solid
– correct positioning
– .stl file export

SLICING SOFTWARE

The slicing softwares are used to slice the .stl files into different sections, allowing the user to change the printing speed and the
quality of the printed object.
The result of the slicing is a text file that contains all the commands and the coordinates that the machine will execute.
Open the slicing software (ie. CURA) and upload the .ini profile contained into the SD card found with the printer, inside the “Configuration”
folder.
Load the .STL file into the slicing software
Save the .Gcode into the SD card and insert it into the printer.

TURNING ON THE PRINTER

Remove the three clips placed on the movement belts and position the printing bed, fixing it with the threaded fasteners.
Turn on the printer by activating the switch placed on the back of the printer.
Select prepare>auto home from the display menu and check that all the sledges are moving to the endstops

PRINTING BED LEVELING

It’s advised to repeat the bed leveling process before every print
Select prepare > manual leveling > 0-1-2-3 and adjust the distance between the nozzle and the printing bed
(for the model DeltaWASP4070 screw up / down the three screws placed on the aluminum plate inside the printer).

FILAMENT LOAD / UNLOAD

It’s necessary to pre heat the extruder depending on the material that is going to be printed, select form the menu prepare > pre
heat PLA /ABS and wait for the extruder to reach the correct temperature.
Place the spool in position (upper part of the machine) and manually insert the filament into the PTFE pipe, then push the filament
into the filament driver, rotating the black knob until the molten plastic comes out from the nozzle.

PRINTING FILE SELECTION

Before printing it’s necessary to apply a small amount of hair-spray / glue on the printing bed (we advise to perform this procedure
with the printing bed removed from the printer.)
The print will automatically start as soon as the extruder and the heated bed reach the predetermined temperature.

PRINTING PROCESS FUNCTIONS

During the printing process new functions will be enabled in the printer menu, such as pause, filament change, stop and save, stop
print.

PRINTED PART REMOVAL

Use a spatula to lift the printed part and detach it from the printing bed.

How to update the Arduino drivers on Windows

La prima volta che si connette la stampante 3D può capitare di dover installare (se non lo avete già fatto per altri motivi, come ad esempio aver installato Cura) i driver per la scheda Arduino. Vediamo come fare:  Per prima cosa dobbiamo scaricare dal sito ufficiale l’Arduino IDE e installare il software. Fatto questo, attacchiamo il cavo USB dalla Stampante 3D al computer. Dopo pochi secondi comparirà la finestra: 1-errore windows   Poi seguire le istruzioni come mostrato nelle immagini:
