Current Machine Status
The Cube is Operational and working well.
Model: 3D Systems Cube 2ND Generation
This is a work in progress. Below are just some random notes. You should probably hold off on using it until I write something better here
Powering on the Cube
- Make sure the USB Key “Cube Firmware” is plugged into the Cube (Need this to hack the activation and filament bypass)
- Make sure the power brick is plugged in all the way
- Press the button just below the screen (Screen should wake up)
Connecting to the Cube
Use specific software
Use the laptop next to the cube “The laptop for the cube” change the wireless network to “Cube-00c9”
Firmware is hacked to ignore filament cartridge life (aka you can refill cartridges)
For right now the bed is not completely level so use a raft always.
need to go through leveling procedure.
DON’T DO IT BECAUSE WE’LL LOSE THE HACK THAT KEEPS IT ACTIVATED AND LETS US REFILL THE FILAMENT.
