Adjust the XY Offset


Topics:

 
Supplies:

  • Glue stick
  • Scraper


Most users will never need to adjust their XY-offset settings. In the rare case that the fiber and plastic nozzles on the print head may be misaligned, the XY Offset utility will print a test part that can be used to identify offset issues. Before beginning this routine, ensure that plastic and fiber are currently loaded in your printer.

Run the Utility Test Print

Note: The print head will become hot during the printing process. Exercise caution when working near the nozzles.

  1. Apply glue to your print bed as shown in the picture below and install the print bed.



  2. Select the menu icon from the dashboard.



  3. Select the Utilities tile from the available options.



  4. Select the Print Head Alignment tile from the available options.

  5. Select the Fiber Nozzle XY Offsets tile.



  6. Press the Print XY Bracket button. Do not remove the printed part until after completing the steps in the subsection below
    Note: The printer will automatically begin printing the part when the button is pressed. Be sure to have leveled and applied glue to the print bed before pressing the Print XY Bracket button.

Adjusting the XY Offset

To adjust the XY-offset, you will need to know how far off the current values are from standard. The most accurate way to find this information is to print the test part via the steps above and leave it on the print bed during the adjustment routine. 

Note: If you have finished printing the XY bracket and have not exited the utility, skip to step 5 below.

  1. Select the menu icon from the dashboard.



  1. Select the Utilities tile from the available options.



  2. Select the Print Head Alignment tile from the available options.

  3. Select the Fiber Nozzle XY Offsets tile.



  4. Press the Adjust button.



  5. Identify the box on each axis that has fiber passing through its center.



  6. In the utility, use the arrow buttons to adjust the black lines until they pass through the boxes that you identified in the previous step.



  7. When you are certain that the offsets are correct, press the Done button.
