Pyroprinter X – video tutorials

Step 1. Assembling the table from the box

IMPORTANT!If you assembled the machine yourself, then be sure to look at two points to avoid defects during burning:

  1. How to adjust the rods 18:20
  2. How to adjust the thermal head  20:58

Step 2. Installing the program and driver for the machine

Download the Pyroprinter software for Windows:

The text instructions can be downloaded here: DOWNLOAD THE TEXT INSTRUCTION

What to pay attention to:

  1. The program should be placed in the root of the C:\ drive (preferably not in the Program Files folder)
  2. If there are antiviruses, it is better to add the program to the exceptions
  3. The drivers are located in the DRIVER folder where you installed the pyroprinter program (for example, C:\Pyroprinter\DRIVER\win ). There are two drivers – install_drivers and install_STM_COM_drivers – both need to be installed
  4. If after installing the program and trying to run it you saw the message

Then you need to install this update for Windows (Visual C++ 2008) DOWNLOAD THE UPDATE

5. If the driver is not installed, you can install it manually. It is done as follows:

  1. you need to go to the device manager;
    • in Windows 10 — right-click on START and select “Device Manager”
    • in Windows 7 – right-click on My Computer – Properties. In the properties window on the top left, “Device Manager”
  2. find a new device there (usually marked with a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark, often signed Maple), right-click on it, select “update/install driver”
  3. select the installation from the specified location on this computer. Next, specify the path to the folder where the piroprinter program is installed. You can use the entire folder – the system will find the files it needs by itself. 

If you have already tried everything and you did not succeed, then install the remote control programTeamviewer YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT HERE (it’s free), install it and run it. And coordinate with the support manager Eugene, so that he connects to your computer and helps to configure it when he has the opportunity. His WhatsApp: +7 912 039-83-77

Step 3. Before start burning

 

Step 4. How to control the machine by the software

We haven’t made a video for the Pyroprinter X version yet. It is in the process of recording. The control of the machine is exactly the same as in the version like in Pyroprinter 3.

 

Included with the machine is 2 pieces of plywood. They are 15*31 centimeters (5.9*12.2 inches) in size. We do not put A4 format, because it does not fit in the box with the machine and use plywood 4 mm thick for these samples. This is to avoid making the box heavy to send.

We have prepared 2 images that are the right size to fit on these plywood: a Hedgehog and a Swan. Click on the photo to download this image in .bmp format.

How to use the machine via WiFi

Read this directions to learn how to use the Pyroprinter via WiFi

 

 

Signals of the “blue diode” on the front side of the controller

The device operates in three modes.

  • USB – always works.
  • WIFI – Connect through the router.
  • As access point – Device works like the router (making WiFi point).

After turning on the device, about 15 seconds, the blue diode will blink.

  • One time – connected via USB .
  • Two times – connected via WIFI .
  • Three times – device created access point
  • Five times – connection error.

Note. If device can’t connect via WIFI or as access point and USB cable is disconnected, blue diode blinks five times and device will be waiting to connect via USB.

 

The program PyroPrinter Hot keys

  • R – start
  • S – stop
  • P – pause
  • Z – returning to the zero
  • SPACE – extrastop
  • Ctrl+click on window with image – rotate image
  • Shift +click on window with image – resize the image

Tip positioning:

  • Left/Right – coordinate X
  • Up/Down – coordinate Y

Set up the movement distance: 

  • F1 or 1 – minimal movement
  • F2 or 2 – 0.5 mm movement
  • F3 or 3 – 10 mm movement
  • F4 or 4 – 100 mm movement

for example:

press F3 and after that  “Left/Right” or “Up/Down” arrow button

or

press button “3” after that “Left/Right” or “Up/Down” arrow button

one tap for arrow button – one movement of the tip for 1 cm in the direction of arrow.

  • Tap V and then tap +/– increase/decrease speed coefficient.
  • Tap T and then tap +/– increase/decrease the tip temperature.
  • F12 – to set up a zero

How to update the firmware in the processor

The Pyroprinter X version has the ability to update not only the program itself on the computer (or phone), but also the firmware (program code in the machine processor). This allows us to add additional functions, algorithms and expand the functionality of the machine.
We provide all updates for free.
If you have just received the machine, then most likely the latest firmware version is already installed in your machine, and you can skip this step.

To update the firmware, you need to download this file to your computer

Download the update from October 21, 2021
