Start a print

Once a print file has been prepared and put on the SD card, it’s time to start the first print!

With the UltiController you can directly start the print by navigating to “Print from SD” and selecting the file that you want to print. Once a print file has been chosen the Ultimaker Original+ will prepare itself by homing the print head and build plate and heating up the build plate and nozzle. Please note that this can take up to 5 minutes.

While printing, the display will show the progress of the print as "SD%". Once finished, wait for the heated bed to cool down and then remove the print from the build plate.

Tip: For good platform adhesion it is recommended to apply a thin layer of glue to the glass plate. Therefore you can use the glue stick that was provided with the Ultimaker Original+. You only need to apply glue to the area where the model will be printed.
