Checklist For New UPers!

Post by TeamTeamUSA » Tue Jan 18, 2011 10:47 pm

Your printer has finally arrived after what seems like forever! What next? Here's a checklist to get you going:

* Download Olaf's manual; many essential corrections, clarifications and tips http://www.ciri.org.nz/downloads/UP!%20 ... 101228.pdf
* Download the 1.0.8 software (1.0.9 is for the next firmware version) http://pp3dp.com/images/download/up%20setup%201.08.zip
* Download the UP! parts and print backups in case one of yours breaks http://pp3dp.com/images/download/UP%20PART%20STL.zip
* Add yourself to the map! http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&m ... a432aa9e69
* Search this forum! Many questions have already been answered; benefit from the wealth of information that's already here!

Go!

I'm using the 1.09 software with and old firmware, works fine, except for a few features not working.
(the heat after print does not work and it stores no info (nozzle height etc) on printer)

One final tip, if besides the fan whines, there are a lot of mechanical noises : grease the rails!
I finally got around to greasing it and it runs a lot more quiet now!

Cheers,

Stijn

Just wanted to give my thanks for this Posting. I think something like this should be a Sticky! If this had not been here, I would have been totally lost on where to start with my UP!!
