Quick Start is a responsive application designed help you get started with your first 3D print in three simple steps:
1 - Connect to your M2
2 - Quick Check
3 - Load filament
Quick Start can also used to calibrate your MakerGear 3D printer quickly and more reliably.
Register and Connect
Before connecting your printer using Quick Start, you'll be required to provide your email address, printer serial number, as well as an activation key in order to complete the product registration process. After completing product registration, Quick Start provides step-by-step instructions to ensure a professionally-calibrated build platform in just minutes.
* Your serial number is located on a sticker on the back of your printer; your activation key can be found in your email inbox under the subject line "MakerGear Product Registration"
Begin Quick Check
During this step, Quick Start checks three different points on your bed and asks you to verify your bed's calibration using three simple "Yes" or "No" prompts. If your bed has remained factory-leveled throughout shipping, you'll proceed to the "Load Filament" step. If your MakerGear's calibration has been compromised during shipping, Quick Start will detect this issue and guide you through the bed calibration process using simple, step-by-step commands.
During this step, you'll be prompted to heat your extruder and build platform. Once your extruder has reached the adequate temperature (PLA: 220 °C; ABS: 245 °C), follow Quick Start's instructions to load and extrude filament. After successfully extruding filament, you're ready to print!

NO MORE GUESSING AND CHECKING
The M2 Quick Start App was created to guide you through the bed calibration process in just three simple steps, and shows you exactly how to create your first 3D-printed masterpiece!
Bed leveling, as some call it, is a tedious and time-consuming process for most 3D printers – not the MakerGear M2 rev. E. The hardware-software integration provided by the MakerGear Quick Start app enables you to calibrate your 3D printer quickly and more effectively in comparison to traditional auto-leveling systems.
EASY TO USE
With the M2 Quick Start App, you are guided step-by-step through the calibration and printing process.
SMARTER CALIBRATION BY DESIGN
M2 Quick Start allows you set your starting height and align your bed corners in just minutes through a semi-automated process that allows for ease-of-use without sacrificing the benefits of manual calibration.
STREAMLINED PRINTER CONTROL FOR BEGGINERS
The "Advanced" tab includes simple tools that allow users to send a wide variety of commands directly to their MakerGear 3D printer.
