Recommended print settings with a .4 mm nozzle:

- 8 bottom layers (1.2 ~ 1.3 mm)
- 8 top layers (1.2 ~ 1.3 mm)
- Infill 20%, depending on infill type
Additional items needed for assembly
- 2 Button head screws M3x8 (or M3x10)
- 2 Brass Heat-Set-Inserts M3 threads
- 2 Standard utility knife disposable blades
1- Using a hot iron, insert one brass M3 heat-set-insert fully into the hole at the base of the top cover. It is important to push the insert fully into the hole – It must not protrude outside of the top cover.
2- Carefully place a utility knife blade in the bottom cover, making sure that the cutting edge is facing the cutting direction – toward the opposite edge of the tool.
3 - Place and align the top cover onto the bottom cover, using the guide pins to help with the alignment.
4 - Once the two covers are in place, use a button head screw M3x8 (or M3x10) inserted from the bottom to secure the two covers in place. Apply just enough torque to secure the parts together - DO NOT OVERTIGHTENT!
Note: Button head screws work best for this application. However, it should be possible to use a different type screw head that would fit and function such as:
- Pan head
- Round head
- Countersunk head
- etc., etc...
Socket head screw should be avoided because they will most likely protrude from the bottom of the tool.
