Stig Nielsen have borrowed his Velleman Vertex to robotics club. To use it, it is recommended to install some drivers & Repetierhost on your own computer and connect with the 3d printer with USB cable.

go to: http://manuals.velleman.eu/article/7-connecting-the-printer-21.html and follow instructions


when you have the repetier host down and installed, open it, go to slicer go to Configuration go to Gcode and click 'create default' ..for both Start 'G-code' and 'End G-code'

then the bed will go down a bit before it starts heating.

Also in addition you can change the 'End G-code' from:

Default end code
G1 X0 Y0 Z130 ; Get extruder out of way. Uncomment to use!

M107 ; Turn off fan

to:

Default end code

G1 X0 Y0 Z280 ; Get extruder out of way. Uncomment to use! M107 ; Turn off fan

Then the bed moves down after print, so its easier to access without manually move the z-axis.

also change print temperature for PLA to 200 degrees Celcius instead of 210.
