Step 1: Download Cura Software
Step 2: Open a Print "Profile"
On the USB stick included with the printer are several pre-made options for print settings. For the Axiom, use any of the ABS profiles (such as: ABS_precision_raft)
Once you open the profile, you will notice the settings in both the Basic & Advanced tabs have changed.
Step 3: Double-Check Your Machine Settings
Open the "Machine Settings" and make sure they look like the ones pictured here.
Step 4: Add Your .STL File
Load your .STL file and apply any rotations/scaling/etc you may need. Make sure to click "Lay Flat" afterwards to ensure the part is flush with the printer's build platform.
Step 5: Export GCode
Finally, simply save your GCode file to the provided SD card.
- Pop it into the machine
- Select "Print from SD Card"
- Select your file and that's it!
