[title] Commissioning the extruder
[* red] Make sure the hot end is at your selected temperature. Click on the '''Machine Control''' on the button.
[* red] Under the '''Extruder Control''' panel, select 100mm and 5 mm/sec buttons as shown in the screen capture.
[* red] Position yourself so you can see the mark you made on the end of the ''extruder drive gear'' in ''Step 87'' then click the blue '''Extrude''' button.
[* icon_note] The extruder shaft should rotate ++clockwise++. If it does not, you likely connected the extruder stepper wiring incorrectly. Re-visit '''Steps 72''' and '''75''' to correct the problem.
[* red] Now click the white '''Retract''' button. This time the extruder shaft should rotate ++counter-clockwise++.
[* icon_note] That's it! Your D300VS is assembled and all systems are checked out and operational. You are ready to make your first print. If you are ready to do that now, proceed to the next step, otherwise, turn off the hot end heater.
[* icon_caution] '''NEVER''' leave your printer unattended when the hot end and bed heaters are on. This also means that you should ++always++ be present when you are printing.
