The stepper motors of the INFINITY 3D Printer can be released to allow for manual movement of the axes. During operation, the stepper motors are locked in place and the axes are not free to move. Upon releasing the stepper motors, the axes will unlock and can be freely moved. Releasing the stepper motors is used during maintenance to manually move the extruder carriage or Quick-change Build Platform.
Steps to release the stepper motors using the Touch Interface:
- Select CONTROLS > MOVEMENT.
- Select RELEASE.
- The stepper motors are now unlocked and the Extruder Assembly and Quick-change Build Platform are free to move on their axis.
