Nautilus User Manual

The Nautilus user manual is beginning to be built. We realize that there is very minimal information, but we want our beta testers to have access to as much documentation on the Nautilus as possible. Comment permissions are open to all, so feel free give feedback.

Known Issues

Z motors sometimes move out of sync

This can happen at the end of a print after printing has finished, or on start up of a new print.

Temporary Fix: Power cycle the printer

Z wobble

This occurs at heights above 150mm on the front and back surfaces of the part. We are looking into this.

Heater Fault on the Tool Cartridge

In the console section of the Nautilus display, there will be a message that indicates a heater fault on heater 1. You will also see the tool temperature highlighted in purple on the control section of the screen. We think this issue occurs as the contact pads on the Tool Cartridge PCB become worn down, so once this starts happening, it will likely happen with increasing frequency over time. New PCBs are currently being manufactured that should fix this issue.

Temporary Fix: Power cycle the printer, or run the change tool command from the macros menu located in the control section of the Nautilus display.
