Congratulations on your new assembled Original Prusa printer. For any first-time users, we have prepared this article and video for you who are just starting out with a Prusa 3D printer.
An assembled printer is already calibrated so that you could start printing right out of the box. However, to account for any bumps the printer might have seen in transit to you, the printer will take you through the Z calibration the first time you start it up. This moves the X-axis to the top, pressing against the top of each Z-axis, to make sure it is the same on both sides.
This should be all the calibration necessary to start printing. However, different types of filament can act in different ways. You therefore should be aware of a couple of things.
All of our printers come with an instructional Handbook. This is not merely a collection of tips and tricks but is the instruction manual for your machine. They cover everything in regards to your printer, from setup, calibration, slicing, printing, and troubleshooting. Even if you are not new to 3D printing we advise you to read this thoroughly. All handbooks are available in a wide range of languages.
