The M200 Plus is equipped with a camera which allows you to monitor the printing process in the My Devices panel in Z-SUITE. The camera is installed in the corner of the printer’s frame, and in the preview the focus should be set on the central point of the platform. If the camera view of your printer is blurry, and focus is set to either side of the platform, you should recalibrate camera’s focus manually. This manual gives instructions on disassembling the camera and adjusting its focus.
|The following manual shows the M200 Plus repair work. For the M300 Plus, these procedures are the same.|
