Print menu

If you go to the print menu you'll find all your gcode files if you are printing via SD card, select the file you want to print. 

 

bcn3d-epsilon-select-file

 

Once the file is selected, the print display will appear. Here you can modify the printing settings, find information about the printing progress, and pause the print or abort it.

 

bcn3d-epsilon-print-display

 

bcn3d-epsilon-settings

Settings

Here you can modify temperatures, the light intensity, and advanced parameters.

bcn3d-epsilon-temperature

Temperatures:

This screen lets you tweak the temperatures for both left and right extruders and the heated bed while your part is being printed. This is extra useful if you find minor stringing or underextrusion happening.

bcn3d-epsilon-advanced-settings

Advanced settings:

Fan speed and flow rate for each extruder are advanced features that can be changed during the printjob if you find extrusion issues or warping. Changing the speed will slow down or accelerate the printjob.

bcn3d-epsilon-light-intensity

Light intensity

Wether you want to save energy or take a peek at how your print is doing, this menu is useful if you want to modulate the amount of light in the printing volume of your BCN3D Epsilon

 

bcn3d-epsilon-pause

Pause

This menu features utility options, as well as the buttons to resume or stop the print. 

bcn3d-epsilon-utilities

Utilities:

Here you can purge the hotends, change the filament or modify the light intensity

bcn3d-epsilon-purge

Utilities, Purge:

Select the extruder that you want to purge, this will start heating to the specified temperature.

bcn3d-epsilon-temperature

Modify temperature

bcn3d-epsilon-purg

Press to purge the extruder.

bcn3d-epsilon-change-filament

Utilities, Change filament:

Select the extruder where you want to change the filament and follow the steps that the system will tell you.

bcn3d-epsilon-light-intensity

Utilities, Light intensity

Wether you want to save energy or take a peek at how your print is doing, this menu is useful if you want to modulate the amount of light in the printing volume of your BCN3D Epsilon

Filament

bcn3d-epsilon-filament

Here you will find the options to load, unload and purge filament. 

 

bcn3d-epsilon-load-filament

Load Filament:

Select the extruder and the filament that you want to load and follow the steps.

bcn3d-epsilon-unload-filament

Unload Filament:

Select the extruder that you want to unload and follow the steps.

bcn3d-epsilon-purge

Purge:

Select the extruder that you want to purge, to start the heating.

bcn3d-epsilon-temperature  Modify the temperature
bcn3d-epsilon-purge Press to purge the extruder



Calibration


bcn3d-epsilon-calibration

This screen features the different options to calibrate the BCN3D Epsilon:

bcn3d-epsilon-surface-calibration

Printing surface calibration:

Follow the steps to calibrate the printing surface.

bcn3d-epsilon-turn-knobs

 

 

 

bcn3d-epsilon-printer-calibration

Printer Calibration:

Follow the steps to calibrate the surface and toolheads.

The first step will be a printing surface calibration if you previously didn't do it.

bcn3d-epsilon-printer-calibration-z

Z-axis left extruder:

Calibrate the Z offset in the left extruder. You can follow the steps or simply skip it if you want to calibrate a different axis

bcn3d-epsilon-printer-calibration-Z-right

Z-axis right extruder:

Calibrate the Z offset in the right extruder. You can follow the steps or simply skip it if you want to calibrate a different axis

bcn3d-epsilon-printer-calibration-shims

Shims installation wizard:

If you have successfully calibrated both heads in the Z axis, this screen will show up. Follow the steps in order to install the shims, this is recommended if you want to print in mirror or duplication mode.

bcn3d-epsilon-printer-calibration-X

X-axis calibration:

Calibrate the alignment on X-axis for both heads. You can follow the steps or simply skip it if you want to calibrate a different axis

bcn3d-epsilon-printer-calibration-Y

Y-axis calibration:

Calibrate the alignment on Y-axis for both heads.

If you skip it, the calibration process will conclude.

 

bcn3d-epsilon-manual-calibration

Manual fine calibration:

Here you can tweak the offsets of all axis in both toolheads manually.

bcn3d-epsilon-manual-fine-calibration-x

Modify X-axis offset

bcn3d-epsilon-manual-fine-calibration-y

Modify Y axis offset

bcn3d-epsilon-manual-fine-calibration-z

Modify Z-axis offset

 

Maintenance

 

bcn3d-epsilon-maintenance

 

In this screen you can move the printing surface, run the hotend clean assistant, or autotune hotends.

 

bcn3d-epsilon-move-printing-surface

Move printing surface interface:

Move up (long)

Move up (short)

Move down (short)

Move down (long)

bcn3d-epsilon-autotune

Autotune Hotend wizard:

Follow the steps to ensure the finest printing performance for your hotends.

bcn3d-epsilon-hotend-cleaning-assitant

Hotend cleaning assistant:

Select the hotend that you want to clean and follow the steps. If you need it, the assistant has the option to repeat the process.
