Packaging foam

To secure the nozzle, you will need a small piece of packaging foam of 2 × 4 × 4 inches.

Stuffing material

To secure the printer itself in the box, please stuff all of the empty space inside the box with bubble wrap, inflatable air cushions or similar soft packaging material.

How to pack the printer:

  1. Move the heatbed by hand towards the LCD screen. Lay the printer on the side where the PSU is to gain access to it from below. Secure the heatbed with zip ties, as shown in the photo below this step.
  • The heatbed has to be attached to both corners of the heatbed.
  • When the zip ties are tightened, the heatbed should not move forward and backward more than a few millimeters (0.1 inch).

  1. Before placing the printer into the crate, please remove the SD Card from the LCD and unload the filament from the extruder (or cut the filament 50 mm / 2 inch above the extruder).
  2. Seat the printer in the crate, and stuff the empty space around the printer with the packaging material supplied. Make sure the printer is well seated and has no space for any significant movement inside the box.
