Moving manually the print head ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Moving manually the print head ?

You can just manually grab the print head and move it. If you have been printing recently, the x and y motors may be powered still, locking the head in place. In that case you can either power the printer off, or just wait a minute or two for the motor lock to time out.
