File Type Description
.stl The file format is native to 3D CAD software. It is widely used for 3D printing.
.3ws After adding supports to the object in XYZware_Nobel, you can save the file in this format. The support layout can be re-adjusted.
.3wn The XYZware_Nobel proprietary file format contains detailed instructions for the printer to follow for each layer. The file is unadjustable. The file type also contains the data of the targeted printer type. When exporting objects to “3wn” format, be sure to select the corresponding printer model in the settings.

LCM Menus

Most operations of the printer are activated with the LCM menus. Below is the description on the function of each item in the menus.

(A) Page 1

(B) Page 2. Press to go to page 2 on the printer screen.


“Utilities” menu provides the control of the printer. You can instruct to fill the resin tank manually, and calibrate the printer when necessary.
Below is the list of functions under the Utilities menu:


Resin auto filling function is enabled by default. The tank will be refilled automatically when resin level low or empty is detected. You may still activate resin-filling function manually.

Before doing so, make sure the resin bottle, resin tank and the lid are installed correctly.

Select “Yes” and press  to begin:

» “Auto Fill” function is enabled by default. You may skip loading resin manually when auto-fill is enabled.
» Shake the resin bottle well before use to ensure an even color.
» The printer detects the tank level after "Install Resin" is activated. Resin will be filled only when the tank level is low.


HORIZON CALIBRATION is for calibrate the print platform. Platform calibration ensures the platform is parallel with the resin tank for more stable printing performance. If the platform is not calibrated, objects may fall during printing.

» Click here to read step-by-step instructions on platform calibration. 
» Always calibrate the platform after changing to a new tank or a tank or a platform different the one used for last print.


Activate the function when you need to move the platform manually.
Simple select move the platform “to top” or “to bottom” to proceed:

When the platform has moved to the bottom or top as indicated, press  to exit the function.



The Settings menu allows you to adjust printer settings, including below items:

(A) Page 1

(B) Page 2. Press the down key to go to page 2 on the printer screen.


When the buzzer is turned on, the printer will output an audible signal when a button is pressed. Buzzer is turned on by default.

To switch off the buzzer: Select “OFF” and press to change the setting.


When “Auto Fill” is enabled, the printer will fill the resin tank before printing and when low tank level is detected. With the auto-fill function, you no longer need to manually refill the resin during printing. This is especially useful when printing large objects. “Auto Fill” is enabled by default.

To disable the function: Select “OFF” and press to change the setting.

» Be sure to place the printer on a leveled surface, or tank level detection may be inaccurate. 
» Auto-fill will be switched off when the timeout expires. Timeout may be caused by an empty resin bottle or the tank level sensor soaked by resin. Please replace the resin bottle or clean up the level sensor before enabling the function.


You may switch the display language on the printer. The default language is English.

To switch to other language: Select a language and press to change the setting.


LED back-light of the LCM enhances the readability of the content of the display.

To save energy consumed, the back-light will go off after the printer idles for 3 minutes (shown as 03M on the display) by default. To set a longer time interval: Select “OFF” and press to change the setting.

A. Backlight will never go off.

B. Backlight will go off after the printer idles 3 minutes.

C. Backlight will go off after the printer idles 6 minutes. Select an option, and press to change the setting.


All settings can be reset to factory default with a few clicks.

To reset all settings at once: Simply select “YES” and press to reset.

(A) Page 1

(B) Page 2. Press  to go to page 2 on the printer screen.


In “Statistics”, you can check the accumulated print time. The accumulated working time for the printer is shown in hours.


Firmware version is shown here. To ensure optimal printing performance, it is advised to keep the firmware up to date. To check for firmware updates, please go to XYZware_Nobel.



“Resin Status” provides the information on resin level, and the capacity, color and material of the resin. Press  on the printer to read the second page.

A. Original amount of resin in the cartridge.

B. Resin level in the resin cartridge

C. The color or material type of the resin cartridge installed.

D. Resin Model indicates the resin version. While setting up printing preference in XYZware_Nobel, please select the correct resin model. The info is also printed on the serial number label on the resin bottle. For resin bottles without the info of resin model, the resin model is A1.



When you encounter exceptional status during the operation of the printer, you may check the status of each sensor here. The information is especially helpful for troubleshooting.

The content may look like this:

How to read the status:

C: 1 – Lid (Top cover) covered; 0 – Lid not covered Z-T: 1 – Platform at top; 0 – Platform away from top Z-B: 1 –Platform at bottom; 0 – Platform away from bottom T: 1- Tank motor in action (Right side of the tank sinks slightly); 0 – Tank motor idling (Tank is leveled) L: 1 – Tank level low; 0 – Tank full or tank not installed Y: 1 – laser engine in action; 0 – laser engine idling

Die Standflächenkalibrierung gewährleistet, dass die Standfläche für eine stabilere Druckleistung parallel mit dem Harztank ist. Wenn die Standfläche nicht kalibriert ist, können Objekte während des Druckens herunterfallen.
Führen Sie immer die Standflächenkalibrierung durch, wenn ein neuer Tank eingesetzt wurde oder ein anderer Tank oder eine andere Standfläche als beim letzten Druck verwendet werden.

Um die Effektivität der Kalibrierung zu gewährleisten, können Sie während des Verfahrens die speziell entwickelte Vorrichtung verwenden.

Über die Vorrichtung für die Standflächenkalibrierung
Klicken Sie hier um die stl-Datei herunterzuladen und drucken Sie 2 Kopien.
Die Vorrichtungen können mit Standardharz gedruckt werden.

Wie wird die Standfläche kalibriert?

Wählen Sie am Drucker “DIENSTPROGRAMME” > “”HORIZON KALIB” und “Ja”, und drücken Sie [OK], um zu starten.

Wenn “OBJEKT VON STANDFLÄCHE ENTFERNEN” angezeigt wird, prüfen und entfernen Sie eventuelle Reste auf der Standfläche oder im Tank und drücken Sie [OK], um fortzufahren.

Lösen Sie 4 Schrauben an den Standflächenhalterungen, drücken Sie [OK] und warten Sie, bis die Standfläche nach unten abgesenkt wurde.

Platzieren Sie die Vorrichtungen auf der rechten Seite des Metallrahmens, an der angezeigten Position.

Wenn die Vorrichtungen richtig platziert sind, sollte der schwarze Rahmen fixiert bleiben, wenn die rechte Seite des Harztanks nach unten gedrückt wird.

Drücken Sie die Standfläche leicht mit beiden Händen.

Halten Sie eine Seite der Standfläche nach unten, während Sie 2 Schrauben auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite anziehen und ziehen Sie dann die Schrauben auf der anderen Seite fest.

Um die Nivellierung der Standfläche zu gewährleisten, halten Sie die Standfläche von der gegenüberliegenden Seite nach unten, wenn Sie die Schrauben festziehen.

Ziehen Sie abschließend die Schrauben mit einer Münze oder anderen Werkzeugen fest. Halten Sie aber gleichzeitig die Standfläche nach unten.

Entfernen Sie die Vorrichtungen für die Kalibrierung und drücken Sie [OK] am Drucker; jetzt ist der Drucker bereit für den nächsten Druck.
