Once a print file has been prepared and put on the SD card, you can start the print job via the UltiController.

Insert the SD card into the UltiController. Press the button to enter the main menu and navigate to Print from SD. Select the file that you want to print. You can scroll through the list by turning the button.

The Ultimaker Original will prepare for the print job by homing the print head and build plate and heating up the nozzle. This will take a few minutes.

While printing, the display will show the progress of the print as SD%. During a print, you can tune settings such as speed, nozzle temperature, and flow rate to improve the print result.

When the print is finished, you can remove it from the build plate. The Ultimaker Original is now ready to start the next print.

Tip: Before starting a new print, always check if the layer of blue tape is still in good condition. If the tape is damaged or worn, remove the tape and apply a new layer.
