After you have put the printer code on the carrier, you can put it in the machine and start it. The printer will display the progression of your print. After starting your print, it's recommended to wait for the first lines of material to be placed on the build plate and to check if this is leveled. The first layer is a good indication of how the rest of your print will go. If the first line is dragging or letting loose quickly, the build plate is too far from the nozzle. If the nozzle is scraping the build plate or leaving a dotted line, then the nozzle is too close to the build plate. In these cases, it’s best to abort the print and recalibrate it.
