    What I've Learned So Far..
    1. Make sure to tighten the Z Axis Coupling Set Screw or else the screw won't turn!
    2. The Extruder would not hit the X-Axis End Switches. Needed to loosen the X-Axis set screws and move the end switches in to allow the Extruder to trigger it. Cura sends the Hot end all the way to the left until it hits the limit at the very start of the print.
    3. I was not able to feed the filament deep enough into the extruder before I removed the 2 set screws on the Extruder.I needed to completely remove the 2 Set Screws next to the filament entry point on the Extruder. Then replace the 2 set screws but do not overtighten.
    4. Calibrate each corner and the center by using a piece of A4 paper between the Hot End and the Heat Bed.
    5. Use CURA.

    Hope this helps.

    but I'm not sure if this was necessary. I installed CURA afterwards and it installed some Arduino drivers as well. The needed drivers might be installed when you install CURA.

    I think my printer is damaged -_-
    I installed all driver, Cura and all settings, but the filament is not moving. When you look in the hole where the filament goes in the extruder, do you see something movin?
    Also the bed heats up, but the extruder not. If I shake the extruder a little bit, it dows...
    Also I have problems to power it off. If I press the power of botton (or the reset button) nothing at all happens...

    When you send a print to the printer using CURA it will show you the temperature of the Bed and Extruder. The bed heats up first then the Extruder heats up.

    There is a roller on the extruder that pushes the filament down. You need to make sure that you are pushing the filament deep into the extruder. The filament will not be fed through to the Hot End if you you do not have it pushed down far enough. I was not able to get the filament deep enough until i removed the 2 hex screws from the extruder.

    Check the board for loose connections...I know another member posted about his extruder not heating up because a connector worked its way loose during shipping.
