2. การเชื่อมต่อ Connecting Form2
Use the included USB cable for connecting a computer directly to the printer. Plug one end of the USB cable into the back of the Form 2, and connect the other end to a computer’s USB port.
The rear of the unit is equipped with a RJ-45 Ethernet (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX) LAN Port. Use a shielded CAT-5 Ethernet cable to connect the printer to a local network. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the back of the Form 2, and connect the other end to your LAN.
The Form 2’s built-in Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n) supports WEP and WPA security. Use the Form 2’s touchscreen to configure a wireless network connection. The Form 2’s Wi-Fi feature does not support 5 GHz connections.
Connect to the Form 2 to upload and manage prints over Wi-Fi, USB, and Ethernet. Learn how to set-up and manage connections to the printer.
Before beginning, make sure you have received your Form 2 and installed PreForm.
The Form 2 can connect directly to a computer with the included USB cable. For remote uploading and monitoring, the Form 2 supports both wired (Ethernet) and wireless (Wi-Fi) connections; PreForm print preparation software must be connected to the same local-area network (LAN) as the printer in order to send a print job. For a Windows operating system, after installing PreForm, check to ensure that Bonjour is properly installed; this is required to connect over Wi-Fi or Ethernet. The USB connection can still be used while the Form 2 is connected to a LAN.
Manual IP Configuration
When connected to an active Ethernet connection or available Wi-Fi network, the Form 2 can be configured with a static IP address.
With an established Ethernet or available Wi-Fi connection, open the printer’s Settings menu on the touchscreen. For Wi-Fi networks, select Wi-Fi, then the desired wireless network. For Ethernet connections, simply open Ethernet from the Settings menu. Toggle the Manual IP settings to “ON” and input the appropriate IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and Name Server.
There are three options for connecting a computer to the Form 2 for printing:
3. การตั้งระดับ Level the Form 2
The Form 2 must be completely level before printing can begin. Start reading to learn how to level your printer and get printing.
With the Form 2 set up and connected, press the button once to power the printer on. If necessary, the touchscreen will prompt use of the leveling tool.
Follow the on-screen instructions to adjust the feet under the printer. With the round leveling tool installed under the designated corner, rotate the tool clockwise to raise and counter-clockwise to lower the height of the printer.
4. การ Set up เครื่อง Form2
4.1. Insert the Resin Tank with the Wiper
Lift the printer’s cover. Remove the resin tank’s black lid and align the four small feet of the resin tank into the corresponding holes in the tank carrier.
Push the tank until it is flush against the front of the tank carrier. The printer will not properly detect the tank unless the tank is fully inserted.
4.2. Lock the Wiper
Ensure the wiper is straight, then align the foot of the wiper with the wiper mount.
Push the wiper toward the tank to align it with the front of the mount. The wiper should be firmly mounted.
4.3. Insert the Build Platform
Align the build platform with the build platform carriage and push into place. Lock the handle down to secure the build platform.
4.4. Shake the Resin Cartridge
Before inserting a new cartridge, shake the cartridge to ensure the resin is well-mixed.
Shake the resin cartridge approximately every two weeks to keep the formula well-mixed for the best print quality.
Then, remove the protective valve cover from the underside of the cartridge. Consider saving the cover to protect the valve during storage.
Do not remove the rubber valve at the bottom of the cartridge. This bite valve controls the release of the resin. Removing the rubber bite valve would allow resin to continuously flow and cause extreme damage to the machine.
4.5. Insert the Resin Cartridge
Align the cartridge with the opening at the back of the printer. Push down on the cartridge handle until the top of the cartridge is level with the printer.
Be sure to press open the vent cap before starting a print, so that your resin tank fills correctly.
