3. After adjusting the distance between the nozzle and the build plate, follow the prompt on the screen to load Hyper Speed PLA filament.

 


4. After the filaments are successfully installed, the printer will start printing a 9-square calibration model. Wait for the model to print.


5. After the model is printed, compare the model with the on-screen example. Select the first transparent square. The printer will automatically adjust the offset value of the left nozzle.


3.6.2 Run the Right Z Probe Offset

1. Enter the Right Z Probe Offset. Make sure your nozzle and build plate are clean. The procedure for calibrating the right nozzle is the same as for the left nozzle.


2. Prepare a 0.3mm feeler gauge. Adjust the distance between the nozzle and the build plate according to the prompts on the screen. Make sure the you can feel some resistance as the feeler gauge moves between the nozzle and build plate. Do not press hard on the build plate.


3. After adjusting the distance between the nozzle and the build plate, follow the prompt on the screen to load Hyper Speed PLA filament.


4. After the filaments are successfully installed, the printer will start printing a 9-square calibration model. Wait for the model to print.


5. After the model is printed, compare the model with the on-screen example. Select the first transparent square. The printer will automatically adjust the offset value of the right nozzle.


3.6.3 Bed Leveling

1.The purpose of this step is to calibrate the flatness of the build plate. The printer will automatically detect 9 points on the build plate and adjust the flatness of the build plate.


2. After the build plate is leveled, a visualized leveling result is displayed.


3.6.4 R-Nozzle XY Offset

1. The purpose of this step is to calibrate the XY offset of the right nozzle so that it aligns with the left nozzle. The printer will heat up automatically and print two test models.


2. After printing, according to the instructions on the screen, select a pair of lines that are completely aligned on the X model and the Y model respectively. As shown in the figure below, the number of a pair of lines that are fully aligned on the X model is 0, and the number of a pair of lines that are completely aligned on the Y model is 0.


3. Input the serial number on the screen. The printer will automatically calibrate the XY Offset of the right nozzle.


3.6.5 Dual-Color Cube

1. This step aims to validate the XY offset value of the right nozzle by printing a dual-color cubes.


2. After printing, please compare the printed dual-color cube with the sample graphic on the screen, and check whether there is an obvious gap between the color blocks.


3. If there is no gap between the color blocks, it means that the XYZ direction offset value of the right nozzle is within a reasonable range. Please click "Done" to complete the 5-step Offset Calibration.


4. If there is a gap between the color blocks, please click "Retry" and re-run the 4th and 5th steps of the 5-step Offset Calibration to recalibrate the XY offset value of the right nozzle.

Step 4: Model Slicing

1. You must download and install ideaMaker 4.4.0 Alpha. Only after slicing with ideaMaker 4.4.0 Alpha, can you print models in Hyper Speed Mode on the Pro3 series. Download link: www.raise3d.com/download/ , or contact the after-sales team for help.


2. After downloading and installing ideaMaker 4.4.0 Alpha, import the model into ideaMaker 4.4.0 Alpha.

Note: Currently only Pro3 series printers can use the Hyper Speed Mode.


3. In ideaMaker 4.4.0 Alpha, there is a built-in Hyper Speed Mode switch in the “Prepare to Slice” / “Select Templates” interface. If the Hyper Speed Mode switch is not turned on, it will be in normal printing mode; if it is turned on, it will enter the Hyper Speed Mode.


3. Select the printer model, filaments, and template.


1) In Hyper Speed mode, only Raise3D Pro3 and Pro3 Plus printers can be selected.


2) In the Hyper Speed mode, only Raise3D Hyper Speed PLA/ABS and Raise3D Premium PLA/ABS templates are provided.


2) Select the slicing template for the filament.


At present, we provide two templates of "Standard" and "High Quality" for PLA and ABS filaments of both Raise3D Hyper Speed series and Raise3D Premium series.


3) The L1/L2 label will be displayed before the template, and the specific judgment rules are as follows:

In ideaMaker 4.4.0 Alpha version, in Hyper Speed mode: the templates will be labeled by L1/L2 according to the values of velocity, acceleration and volumetric flow rate in the templates settings.


4) ideaMaker will judge all parameters related to speed, acceleration and flow rate in the current template settings. As long as one parameter value reaches L1 or L2, after the template is saved, L1 or L2 labels will be added to the template (In Standard Mode, labels will not be displayed) .
