[title] Commissioning...Commissioning the hot end and bed
[* red] Before working on the new stuff, let'scontinuing, verify that the endstops and steppers are still operating properly. Re-doRepeat ''Steps 59'',.59'', ''60'' and optionally ''Step 61'' before proceeding.
[* icon_note]
Everything check out OK? Great, lets get startedIf so, continue this step.
[* red] Open a web browser and load the DWC. Notice the temperature displays for the Heater'''Heater 1 (hot'''(hot end) and Bed'''Bed''' temperatures. These should display reasonable room temperature values. Forvalues, for example, 20*C (68*F). It's ok if the temperatures are off by a few degrees and also if they are not identical.
[* red] Remove the blue silicone sock from the hot end. Enter '''60'''* in the '''Heater 1''' field and press '''ENTER'''. The hot end should start to heat up and stabilize at 60*C. Verify that the hot end fan turns on at 50*C, it is thermostatically controlled and turns on above 50*C and off below.
[* red] Once the hot end is up to temperature, enter '''60'''* in the '''Bed''' field and press '''ENTER'''. Again, watch the temperature display to verify the bed reaches 60*C. This will take several minutes.
[* red] Next enter '''225'''* in the '''Heater 1''' field and press '''ENTER'''. Allow the hot end to reach 225*C.
[* red] Now enter '''275'''* in the '''Heater 1''' field. You are going to do the final nozzle tightening as prescribed by E3D for the V6 hot end. Read about the procedure here: [https://wiki.e3d-online.com/wiki/E3D-v6_Assembly#Final_Tightening|Final Tighenting|new_window=true]. Note that E3D specifies 285* but 275* is adequate and leaves a little margin for safety.
[* icon_note] You do not need to perform the PID tuning described on the E3D V6 page. You can also do the final tightening with the hot end installed on your printer if you are careful, but do be careful, 275*C can leave a nasty burn.
[* red] Turn off the heaters by entering '''0''' in both the '''Heater 1''' and '''Bed''' fields. Verify that they are cooling down.
