The following guide provides a high-level order of operations to ensure ongoing success with the AON M2+ (CE), AON M2+ (R-NZ) and AON M2+ machines that operates with the Klipper-based firmware. Make sure that all linked articles are read in their entirety as this section is only meant to serve as a quick start overview.
The instructions that follow are for the AON M2+ (CE), AON M2+ (R-NZ) and AON M2+ machines that have the Klipper-based firmware only.
Refer to Quick Start (Marlin) for AON M2+ (CE), AON M2+ (R-NZ) and AON M2+ machines that have the Marlin-based firmware.
To upload a file into the GUI:
Uploadto import the G-code file onto the AON3D machine.
Refer to Clean Build Platform and Build Chamber.
Do not use compressed air to clean the machine component(s) unless otherwise specified. The use of compressed air can cause damages to machine component(s).
Make sure there is sufficient filament on the spool before a print is started. Simplify3D® and SuperSlicer give an estimate on the weight of filament necessary for each part in the G-Code viewer. To calculate the weight of filament necessary:
Install the heater block assembly that has a nozzle size that matches your print profile. Refer to Replace Heater Block Assemblies.
Refer to the Build Platform Adhesion guide to determine a compatible build platform.
Some filament and build platform combinations require the use of an adhesion aid.
The build platform must be correctly installed to get satisfactory print results.
Refer to the Install Build Sheet procedure.
Refer to Preheat Build Chamber Components.
Use the Graphical User Interface (GUI) to heat the toolhead(s) to the bed target temperature + 50°C:
Turn the power to hot end heater(s) OFF when there is no print in progress. Do not let the hot end heater(s) idle for an extended period of time without extrusion. This can cause the polymer filament to burn and clog the nozzle(s). Refer to Hot End Heater Timeout Feature.
AON3D recommends calibrating the Z-axis before every print.
Refer to the Z Offset Calibration (M2+ Klipper) procedure. Repeat for the adjacent toolhead, if required.
If a print uses the two toolheads for the same print, the toolheads must be calibrated along the X/Y-axes before a print is started. The X/Y-axes calibration procedure adjusts the coordinate system of the two toolheads to be in line with each other.
To make sure that the X/Y Toolhead Offsets Calibration procedure is done correctly, AON3D provides STL files.
Refer to the X/Y Toolhead Offsets Calibration procedure.
When the print is complete:
0.1as the Offset Adjustment Distance (mm).
+button to input the offset value on the X-axis.
+button to input the offset value on the Y-axis.
SAVEto save the offsets.
Repeat the X/Y calibration - 0.1 scale print and adjust the X/Y Toolhead Offsets until the X-axis and Y-axis scales center lines are aligned.
Closerto adjust the distance between the build platform and the nozzle.
Fartherto move the build platform down (away from the nozzle).
Closerto move the build platform up (toward the nozzle).
