You’re ready to run your first print on your Voxel8 Developer’s Kit.
1. Verify the following things before printing.
✓ Build Plate is installed and kinetically coupled.
✓ Build Plate has a blue tape square applied.
✓ Filament is loaded and has successfully dispensed some thermoplastic material.
2. To print your first model, select the “1stprint” entry from the front touch panel (see Picture 001).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Be CAREFUL when removing printed parts from the Voxel8 build plate using sharp instruments such as those indicated above.
Remove the print from the build plate using the Voxel8 supplied flexible putty knife (or a razor blade) to help carefully pry it up from the blue tape square you previously applied.
