⬢Plug the external PSU into the printer and electricity. Ensure the power switch is ON. Press the button on the front to turn the printer on.
See the correct orientation of the connector! The arrow on the flat part of the connector must be facing the power switch. Do not attempt to plug the connector in a different orientation. You can damage the electronics.
There is a sliding lock on the connector. For removal, grab the larger part of the connector and pull it outwards. Don't pull the cable, it won't be able to disconnect that way.
⬢This method requires a network connection. Please, make sure that the printer is connected via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
Starting with firmware 1.3.0, the printer performs automated checks for newer firmware files online and displays an on-screen message when a new update is found. Firmware 1.4.0 enables a manual firmware check via an on-screen button.
⬢On the touch screen navigate to: Home -> Settings -> Firmware -> Download Now. You will see the new Update is available. Click on it.
⬢On the screen with the new firmware version info and QR code scroll down and click on "Install".
⬢Wait until the whole process is completed. Upgrading the firmware can take a few minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
⬢The printer restarts itself after the installation is complete.
After upgrading the printer, some of your projects will not be compatible with SL1S and the printer needs to remove them. You can download them by entering the address from the display into a web browser on your computer.
In order to download your projects, your computer must be connected to the same network as the printer.
⬢Everything downloaded? Click on "Yes". If you click No, the printer will not allow you to continue the upgrade.
⬢The printer detects upgraded components and needs to erase all configuration settings (e.g. UV calibration data, platform calibration data) to complete the upgrade procedure. If you agree to delete them, click "Yes"to continue.
After completing the calibration in the next chapter, the printer will create new configuration settings.
⬢Once the hardware upgrade is complete, all settings data (e.g., a print screen calibration) are deleted. Reverse downgrade will only be possible using the UV calibrator. If you agree, click on "Continue".
⬢The print display calibration is automatic on the SL1S SPEED. You don't need the UV calibrator.
⬢Good job! You just fully upgraded to the SL1S SPEED printer.
⬢Go to the next chapter: 5. Calibrating the printer
