    Control Box information

    All those unpacking videos on YouTube that show you blokes pulling CR10's out of packaging and then putting them precociously together stops at the part where they switch on the control box.

    But what happens then. That box seems to stump a lot of people as well as me. So is there a good guide that leaves nothing to the imagination and goes into the nitty gritty workings of the electronic side of our fantastic hobby.

    Someone please shed some light on this box of tricks so I can print my next eBay money earner.

    Thanks a lot.

    You mean you need help attaching each wire to each connector?

    Done all that and homed the nozzle. Set everything up and turned on the control box, but was stumped from that point on.

    I've got a copy of Cura and played around some with it just to familiarise myself, but it all comes back to the box.

    Its probably quite easy to work, but I need a nudge in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    You need to get a model to print, either model it yourself or dl from thingiverse...
    With it, you need a slicer to create every layer. the slicer will also tell the printer to heat and prepare (home) to print.
    once sliced, you save it onto Sd and in your "box" tell to print from sd.

    thats it.

    Exactly
    Just that little nudge in the right direction, Oh and a quick video from YouTube ( goo.gl/kTDn8h ) from unpacking, setting up and control box explanation as well.

    Just needed to search a little further.

    I'll remember that in future.

    Thanks bolsoncerrado

    Fabian.
