Your First Prints
After you have successfully leveled the build platform and loaded the Mak-
erBot PLA filament into the extruder, the LCD panel will ask you:
How'd it go? Ready to make something?
At this point, you're probably really excited to start making. Before selecting
Yes, you need to insert the SD card. The Replicator 2 package includes an SD
card that is loaded with files for making test objects. Insert the card into the
SD port directly behind the LCD panel as shown in Figure 6-21 .
Figure 6-21. Installing the SD card
With the SD card installed, you can now select Yes. The LCD panel displays:
Awesome! We'll go to the SD card menu and you can select a model!
Use the arrow keys to navigate through the list of models on the SD card. You
can choose from the objects shown in Table 6-1 .
