Plug in printer

Once the printer has been placed, plug it in. We strongly recommend you use a surge protector or uninterrupted power supply to protect your printer. If you plan on connecting your printer into your local network via Ethernet cable, you will find a port on the back of the printer to do so.

Powering On

Once the machine accessories are installed correctly, and all protective films have been removed, power on the printer using the power switch on the left hand side of the rear panel.

After powering up your Pro S, you will be presented with onboarding instructions on the screen that will help you get your printer set up.

Start by selecting your preferred language:

You can also choose Switch to Hotspot on the network selection screen to have the printer broadcast a W-Fi hotspot for direct connection to a PC:

Once selected, a Wi-Fi network with the printer's serial number will show as available on your PC. The password for the hotspot will also be shown on the printer touchscreen. Click Confirm once finished:

Activate the Resin Tank

The resin tank should be pre-installed in SprintRay Pro when you take it out of the box. The resin tank holds your liquid resin and should be treated with care.

For best results, it is always recommended to use a dedicated Resin Tank for each different material that you use.

During the initial set up, you will need to select Activate Resin Tank to assign a material to your Resin Tank:

Choose Select Material Now:

ftue_resin_selection.png

Select the resin manufacturer for the material you wish to print with from the icons and drop down list, or use the Search bar at the top to search by resin name:

Once you have selected a resin, click Save:

Enable Automatic Updates

Automatic updates will ensure your printer has the latest software and new features at time of release, removing the need for you to manually check. This process is performed overnight when the printer is not in use, and will never interrupt printer operation.

At the First Time Setup screen, select Enable Automatic Updates:

Automatic Updates will default to Off:
