Basic information

When printing process do not touch: the model, head of the 
working table; failure to comply with this warning may cause burns 
and / or deformation of the print,

 

After completion of the printing wait until the printer 

 

components cool down,

 

When printing, do not place other objects in the area of 

 

printer as this may damage the printer,

 

Use gloves and goggles when removing the model from the 

 platform,

 

Juveniles can use the printer only under adult supervision,

 

Additional tools should be kept away from juveniles.

The device is powered by AC 230V / 50Hz. Connect it to a power socket 
with a safety pin (earth) to prevent electric shock in the event of fault.
The place of installation should meet the following conditions:

 

the room must be equipped with ventilation appropriate to its size,

 

the printer must be placed on a flat, stable surface.

Do not install the device:
 outdoors,
 

in damp or places exposed to flooding,

 

in the vicinity of flammable materials and heat sources.

Before using the Kreator Motion printer, it is recommended to read the 
following instructions.

Calibration of the platform

Calibrating  the  working  platform  is  recommended  when 
you first start the printer. Calibration of the table consists 
of  leveling  it  with  respect  to  the  print  head  by  means  of 
three nuts located underneath the table’s platform. Tighte-
ning them (turning them to the right) lowers the table, while  
loosening them (turning them to the left) raises the table. 

NOTICE!

During the calibration process the print head heats up to 235°C. Be careful and do not touch the head components.

Calibration of the platform

From the main menu, select 

Calibration

. The print head will travel to the front of the chamber and heat up to 

235

o

C. Clean the nozzle with tweezers and choose 

Next step

.

The print head will move to the first calibration point, located above nut nr 1. By turning the nut will cause the 
printer’s backlight to change color from white to green.

NOTICE! 

A green light does not always mean that the printing platform is properly calibrated. If the head moves 

to the calibration point and printer light turns green, turn the nut to the right until the light turns white. Then 
turn the nut to the left.

A change in the back light from white to green indicates the appropriate level.

Choose 

Next step

. The head will travel to the next position.

Repeat the procedure from steps 2 and 3 for the remaining calibration points.

After calibrating the head in the last position, choose 

Exit

. The head will travel to the default position. Following 

this procedure, the table is correctly calibrated.

Installation / Change of filament

NOTICE! 

During the process of changing the filament, the print head heats to temperature of 235°C. Be careful and do not 
touch the head components.

Before the first print, a spool with filament must be installed in the printer. This option is also used to 
change the material to another.

Open  the  side  door  of  the  fila-
ment compartment.

If you load the material for the first time, skip 
this step. If you change the filament, remove 
the old material from the tube through the 
filament  sensor  inside  the  chamber  and  re-
move the spool from the roller.

Prepare  the  new  filament  spool–unravel 

about 40 

cm of material

 and make sure that the material is 

clean. Then straighten 

around 5 cm

 of the filament 

that you want to load to allow its smooth insertion 
into the head. Uneven ends must be cut using a pair 
of pliers, which you can find in the toolbox.

Load the material into the fi-
lament sensor located inside 
the  filament  compartment. 
Continue to load about 40 
cm of it until you clearly feel 
resistance.

Choose the 

Insert  filament

 option from 

the menu repeatedly while at the same 
time pushing the filament at the opening 
of the sensor. The extruder should draw 
the material, resulting in a mild increase 
in the filament’s downforce. Choose the 
option Insert filament until the material 
comes out of the print head. Remove ex-
cess filament with tweezers.

Place the roll of material 
on the roller and close the 
door  of  the  filament  com-
partment.

From the menu, select

 Exit

Following this procedure, the 
printer is ready to print using 
the new filament.

Printing

Perform calibration of the platform with a procedure which can be found in this manual (page 16)

Instal material in your printer (page 18)

Insert the SD card into the reader located at the lower right corner of the device.

From the main menu select 

Print

.

From the menu, choose the type of material used, followed by the file that you want to print.

The printer will warm the head and print platform to the setpoint temperatures, after which it will begin to print.

Additional information

Each time you print, clean the table with the remains of the filament and other dirt. It has a big impact on the proper 
bonding of layers of the material in the initial stage of printing. Use spatula and dry cloth.

Filament should be stored according to manufacturers guidelines.

It must be clean and dry place. Contact with moisture and dirt may negatively affect its properties and result in pro-
blems with the device. Malfunctions caused by the use of low-quality filament are not covered by the warranty.

The success of print largely depends on its base. It is worth watching the process of applying few initial layers. If they 
are fully set on the platform, we can be confident that the further printing process will be conducted properly.

Do not heat the print head when fans are off, it may cause a damage of the printer.
