1. Remove the spool holder and the drawer.
2. Unscrew LCD display screen and put the bolts aside - do not unplug.
(For the video tutorial, see the resource page.)
DO NOT USE ON THE ALCOHOL WIPES ON THE VAAPR PRINT BED.
Alcohol irreversibly damages the print surface!
(ONLY clean the VAAPR print bed with mild soap and water. SOAP MUST NOT BE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING: 'HEAVY DUTY', SCENTED, OR ALCOHOL BASED. )
a. Peel adhesive film back about 5cm or 2”
b. Align the bed corner markings with the back corners of the build surface and gently set in place.
c. Peel off most of the adhesive film and hang it in front of the build plate, leaving just enough to cover the area where you grip the bed (1-2 cm).
d. Using one hand - press a small portion of the top edge of the bed into place on the build plate and flex it into a slight curve like a spatula pushed down onto a table.
e. While still flexing the bed, use a clean microfiber cloth to press out the air bubbles in a ‘V’ pattern, starting from the middle to the top edges.
i. As you get to the bottom, instead of flexing the bed, use the cloth to press out air bubbles while pulling out the rest of the backing.
f. Once film is completely removed, Push down on the bed vertically from top to bottom, working across to ensure an even application.
CAUTION! ALCOHOL, ACETONE + SOLVENTS will DAMAGE VAAPR print bed.
In the event you wish to remove the VAAPR bed, please consult 3DQue for a safe removal technique.
1. Attach the feet mounts (Q7) onto the ends of the provided aluminum extrusions, if not attached already, and ensure the top face of the extrusion is completely exposed.
2. Using the large T-nuts and M5x8mm bolts, attach the larger sides of the angle brackets (E17/E18) to the provided extrusion to make the Quinly base:
3. Attach base to printer.
Install left front panel
Attach the tilt bracket to the printer
4. Flip the printer to the left side
5. Place the printer upright and clip in the side ramps (E23, E24) into the inner slots of the left and right CR-6 SE base extrusion.
6. Re-attach the spool holder to the CR-6 SE base extrusion.
This comes preloaded with Quinly software on a micro SD card and includes a protective case, fan, power supply, and cables.
Step 1: connect to Wifi.
Step 2: attach to printer.
USE EXTREME CAUTION TO AVOID SCRATCHING THE VAAPR BED.
Please follow your regular procedure of leveling your CR6-SE.
A nozzle scraping the bed will cause permanent damage.
a. If the nozzle cannot touch the paper even when Z = 0, decrease your z-offset in 0.5mm increments, home XYZ and try again.
b. If your nozzle touches the paper before Z = 0, then increase your z-offset, home XYZ and try again.
ALWAYS check that print bed is level and z-offset is calibrated before attempting to print any parts.
You can now upload your files and submit jobs! To ensure the system works correctly, we have provided a mock print that tests connection, heating, cooldown, and the clearing procedure. To check that the system has been properly installed, we advise you run a mock print (no need to install hardware or filament).
MONITOR THIS PRINT: If at any stage it looks as if the print head will collide with the bed, stop the printer immediately and repeat Section 9.0.
For PLA we recommend a 60°C bed and 225°C temperature for optimum adhesion. If PLA adhesion or release is insufficient at 60°/225°C, try increasing the bed and nozzle temperature in 5° increments, up to 75°C/250°C. For other materials, refer to our website for printing temperatures.
Follow the filament manufacturers recommendation.
Skirts and Brims:
We recommend turning on the skirt for priming and setting the skirt distance to 0.39mm on a 0.4 mm nozzle. Using a single line skirt allows easy post processing.
If you are not getting optimal finish, bed adhesion or part release, it’s likely to be an issue associated with your printing parameters. This guide will help with basic troubleshooting. For more advanced support, please join our community Discord server.
You may also take a look at our Troubleshooting Page for any additional issues you may encounter.
Now that you are starting to get familiar with Quinly, it's a matter of time before you will want to start experimenting with new materials. Here is our simple guide on optimizing bed temperature for first layer adhesion and worry-free part release. You may also reference the Materials Page for recommended settings.
*It should be noted that lower bed temperatures can result in poor part release, and should only be used when absolutely necessary.
You will be able to upload files and submit jobs from any supported desktop browser (we recommend Chrome or Firefox). A more detailed software manual can be found on our resources page.
We simply orient our printer near the edge of a table, desk, workbench, etc. or place it on a stand. You can then use any bin or container to catch parts underneath! If you have cool catchment ideas, please share them with us! @3dque on Instagram.
With Quinly you are still able to able to make any modifications to your printer as you please. Check out our bed cooling fan here to reduce your cooldown time:
