To run the utility test print:

  1. Make sure you have Onyx and Carbon Fiber loaded into your printer.
  2. Apply glue to your print bed as shown in the picture below and place your print bed into your printer.



  3. Press the menu button in the upper right corner of your printer's LCD touch screen.



  4. Select the "Utilities" tile from the available options.



  5. Select the "Print Head Alignment" tile from the available options.



  6. Select the "Laser Guided Offsets" tile.



  7. Select "Print Test Part" from the options on the screen.



  8. Allow the print to finish and continue on to the Adjustment routine.

Adjust the Laser Offset

Once your test print has finished, inspect it to ensure that the fiber is laid out cleanly and that it is firmly adhered to the part. If the fiber is not smooth and well-adhered, please try printing the test part again.

Note:If you just ran the print of the test part from the Adjust Laser Offset utility, the on-screen instructions should prompt you to continue directly into the adjustment routine. If that is the case, please skip the menu navigation steps in this section.

To run the laser offset adjustment routine:

  1. Press the menu button in the upper right corner of your printer's LCD touch screen.



  2. Select the "Utilities" tile from the available options.



  3. Select the "Print Head Alignment" tile from the available options.



  4. Select the "Laser Guided Offsets" tile.



  5. Select "Adjust" from the options on the screen.



  6. Select "Next" to continue to the adjustment routine.



  7. Allow the printer to run through the adjustment and follow the on-screen prompts as needed.
