So i’ve just purchased on of the X5 Continuous Printer for our school, and have not for the life of me been able to get the software to allow me to print anything.
I’ve used 3D printers before, but most have been pretty much “plug and print”.
Before plugging the computer into the X5 i was able to create a couple of previews in the software, but then realized it had defaulted to ABS, when the filament that comes with the machine is PLA.
Now after connecting the printer to the computer using USB it now wont even allow any object to be printed everything is “outside the bounds or too small for the layer”?, even when its auto placed inside the center of the box, it goes red as soon as you hit print or even preview. I’ve tried anything and everything i can think off, calibrating the pad, adjusting the thickness of the extrusion.
What am i missing here?
Do i need to calibrate the maximum height somewhere and i’ve missed that, wouldn’t it be set to a default value out of the box?
