1. Click here to download Cura software.
2. Download Cura configuration files and testing models on our Download Center.
3. Open Cura, add printer into the software according to the following instructions:
It's required to add new printer when you open Cura for the first time. After adding, please jump to step 4 for generating G-code.
Machine and add a printer.
Machine -> Add printer -> Add a non-networked printer -> Custom -> Custom FFF printer
Printer name into
Rotrics V1.0 , click
Add to add a new printer.
C. Set the printer settings and extruder parameters:
X(Width) - 150 mm *this is the width of Rotrics plate. For other plate, please use related width.
Y(Depth) - 150 mm *this is the length of Rotrics plate. For other plate, please use related length.
Z(Height) - 270 mm
Origin at center - Yes
G-code flavor - Marlin
X min - 0
Y min - 0
X max - 0
Y max - 0
Start G-code, set the module as 3D printing module, set the filament position as 0 and motion mode as straight-line mode
;Start G-codeM888 P3G92 E0M2000
End G-code, stop the cooling fan and stop heating the nozzle and lift up the nozzle after print is finished.
;End G-codeM106 S0M104 S0G91G0 Z20G90
Set extruder and filament parameters:
Nozzle Size - 0.4 mm
Compatible material diameter - 1.75 mm
Nextto complete printer setting
Rotrics V1.0 -> Manage printers -> Profiles -> Import to import the recommended Rotrics printing configuration files.
You can also customize the printing parameters according to different filaments: layer height, fill density, printing temperature, print speed.
5. Upload your 3D model into workspace.
You can get 3D models from these methods:
Use 3D design software, like Fusion 360, Solidworks.
Use 3D scanner.
Through 3D model sharing website like Thingiverse.
6. Adjust 3D model size, orientation with the left control section.
Slice and then
Save to File , save the G-code to your computer.
