New user here - just got my M200 2 days ago (first ever 3D printer).
How does the M200 know which Z-whatever material is loaded? I don't see any way to tell it, but surely each material needs different temperatures/speed, etc. So how does the machine know?
Is there an RFID tag on each spool or something? I'm just curious.
BTW, if anybody cares...
So far I've printed just one thing - the rook that came on the SD card.
I was amazed that it printed PERFECTLY the first try - a friend with a BCN3D Sigma spent weeks tweaking parameters until he could get a clean, reliable print.
This is EXACTLY what I wanted when I chose this machine. Just prints - not a new hobby. :-) :-)
Feedback for Zortrax (if they see this):
1 - Settle on names for things. I think I saw 5 different names for the filament guide thing on the back of the printer. Took me a while to realize they were all referring to the same thing. And "Z-ABS Juice" (online manual) vs "Z-Liquid" (sticker on the platform)??? It's pretty confusing - make yourself a glossary and stick to it!
2 - The knob on the front of the machine turns the opposite way from what I'd expect. Since it's on the right side of the display, I expect clockwise to move the cursor up, and vise-versa. It does the opposite.
3 - The auto-calibration procedure talks about "clockwise" and "counter-clockwise" but that isn't helpful, because it depends if you look at the screws from above (as when standing) or from below (as when sitting and looking at the screws). Say if you mean from the top or from the bottom.
4 - The calibration screws are too difficult to turn. If they had a larger diameter it would be much easier.
5 - The documentation that came with my unit talks about a USB cable. There isn't even a USB port, let alone a cable.
6 - The website says to make "Z-ABS Juice" with white Z-ABS. Nobody told me I needed some white filament - I have only green, blue, and black. Include a little with the printer so people can make juice.
7 - It would be very helpful to have a SINGLE PDF with all the manual information, instead of needing to download 20 or 30 files from the website, one on each topic. (I like to have things available offline.)
8 - The website talks about maintenance and lubrication, but doesn't say what kind of lubricants to use.
I hope this is helpful...
