Build Plate Positioning

The printer’s build plate is attached magnetically using 4 magnets located at the corners of printer’s platform.

When positioning the build plate, ensure all 4 metal attachments at the corners of the glass are in contact with the magnets of the platform.This allows the glass to be in direct contact with the MK3 heated bed to ensure the heat is transferred properly.

When positioning the glass correctly the user will hear a snapping sound. The glass should not be able to be moved freely out of that position.

If desired this can be verified looking through the side panels of the printer to ensure the snaps are in place.
