In this machine is very easy mounting all electronics, Geeetech give us all cables to connect everything, it's just plug and play :)

Step 3: Software and Firmware

We strongly recommend to all users update the firmware to lastest (1.0.5 in this moment), this update correct several issues on Gcode and on extruder print.

For this printer, we use Repetier, you can download here: Repetier

Geeetech have on his website this settings manual for repetier: Software Manual

Step 4: Tests

well, we didn't finished our all tests yet, but we have something to share with you :)

On this moment, we have tested the single print skills and we have a bad print on first time with geeetech settings... But we improved and on second print, we have a better print when compared with the first :)

The mixer we have to improve to show a good result, on next week we will update with news :)

You can see on this video the mixer working.
