Beginner's Guide to Getting Started with the MakerGear M2

Post by Jules » Sun Feb 07, 2016 6:38 pm

Many, many thanks to everyone who helped with suggestions and the editing on this thing, it is much appreciated! :D

This is a 26 page, detailed guide that will hopefully direct newcomers to everything they need to be able to find without having to spend all day searching for it. It also spells out a couple of the more important Settings procedures, for those who are brand new and a bit hesitant. (Lot of the information in it also appears in the Getting Started guide - this has been expanded for beginners and non-techie folk.)

(And i hope it will be a little easier to follow given the limitations of the forum format.)


Note: If you have the new M2 V4 Rev.E Printer, (shipping after 3/1/16), this guide is not geared to your printer. A new guide has been prepared for your machine, and has been placed in the "How To" section.

Okay insta, handing off to you. (Hope you got all those matrices ready!) :lol: Whew!

Locking the topic to prevent it from derailing ... Jules has a great document here. PM her with changes and we'll get the thread updated accordingly.

This is definitely pro newbie material.
