Assemble xTool D1 Pro

1. Fit the plates together

24.png

(1) Cut off the cable tie on the right plate. Note that no scissors are included in the pack.25.png

(2) Fit the four side plates together. Align the power switch, power port, and USB port with the openings on the right plate.

26.png

(4) Use screws to fit the timing pulleys.

32.png

 

33.png The screws are used to set the tension of the timing belts. Do not fully tighten them. Otherwise, the timing belts may be damaged.

 

2. Fit the shaft

(1) Put the shaft through the coupling, and then put it through the timing belt and insert it into the idler pulley.

34.png

 

35.png 28.png If you can't put the shaft through the timing belt, the possible cause is that the timing belt is set too tight. You can adjust its tension by turning the screw.

(2) Slide the coupling to the joint of the shaft and motor shaft.

36.png

Note: Keep a small distance between the coupling and motor, or the coupling can't rotate properly. 

mceclip1.png

(3) Slide the two sliders down against the front plate.

37.png

(4) Fully tighten the two screws on the coupling.

 

38.png

3. Connect the motor on the left plate to the main control board

(1) Insert the connectors into the port on the main control board and the one on the motor, respectively.

 

39.png

 

40.png 28.png Pay attention to the front and back sides of the connector. Insert it properly.

(2) Use cable ties to fix the motor cable on the front plate.

41.png

4. Fit the middle plate

(1) Cut off the white cable ties on the middle plate and reserve the black ones.

42.png

(2) Insert the connector of the motor cable into the port on the motor.

43.png

(3) Align the middle plate with the screw holes on the sliders, and use screws to hold the middle plate and sliders together.

 

44.png

(4) Use the screw to fit the timing pulley.

45.png

 

33.png The screw is used to set the tension of the timing belt. Do not fully tighten it. Otherwise, the timing belt may be damaged.

5. Complete the wiring

(1) Connect the limit switch component on the middle plate to the one on the slider of the left plate.

(2) Insert the connectors of the laser module, motor, and limit switch connection cables into the ports on the main control board, respectively.

46.png

(3) Use cable ties to fix the connection cables on the right plate.

47.png

6. Install the laser module

(1) install the nozzle connector and insert the plug.

48.png

(2) Connect the main control board and laser module.

49.png

(3) Fit the laser module on the middle plate.

 

50.png

(4) Use the thumb screw to fit the laser module.

Turn the handle clockwise Hold the handle to draw it away from the thread part Rotate the handle to stop it from being blocked

 

55.png 56.png
Release the handle Turn the handle clockwise again

 

33.png You may need to repeat this process multiple times to tighten the thumb screw.

 

28.png Use the thumb screw

 

57.png

 

If the handle is blocked, you can tighten or loosen the screw as follows.

 

58.png 59.png
Hold the handle to draw it away from the threaded part.

Rotate the handle to stop it from being blocked

The screw is not tightened or loosened.

60.png 61.png

Release the handle

The handle goes back to the default position.

Rotate the handle to tighten or loosen the screw

7. Install the TF card

62.png

Great! The assembly is done.

Precaution

Prevent the middle plate and laser module from falling down themselves. Otherwise, the limit pieces may be damaged.

Set up xTool D1 Pro

Adjust the tension of the timing belts

64.png

 

33.png Try to set the timing belts on the right and left plates to the same tension, so that xTool D1 Pro can cut and engrave materials properly.

 

Set the position of the laser module

65.png

 

66.png 67.png 68.png
Put the focal length setting bar down Loosen the thumb screw on the other side and slide the laser module upward or downward After determining the position, tighten the thumb screw and put the focal length setting bar back

 

Set the position of the rear plate on the laser module

(Applicable only to the laser module of 20W)

28.png To cut thicker materials, you can adjust the position of the rear plate on the laser module, based on the scale with which the focal length setting bar is aligned, to ensure better cutting performance.

 

mceclip0.png

It's recommended that you adjust the position of the rear plate according to the thickness of the material to be processed.

 

70.png

After adjusting the position of the rear plate, you can still use the focal length setting bar to set the position of the laser module.

For details about how to create with example projects, see "xTool D1 Pro Example Project Files and Tutorials."

 

Before creating your works, you can place the aluminum sheet in the working area of xTool D1 Pro to protect your desk or floor from being smoked or burned.

 

74.png

 

28.png If the aluminum sheet is not flat due to film removing, you can use masking tape to stick it on your desk or floor.

Clean the laser module

When the light shield is dirty or laser beams can't cut a material, you need to clean the laser module.

 

1. Turn off the device and remove the laser module from the device. 86.png

 

2. Remove the nozzle and its connector from the laser module.

 

87.png

 

3. Clean the inner and outer frames of the light shield with tissues or dust-free cloth moistened with alcohol, and clean the laser lens and infrared laser-emitting point with a cotton swab moistened with alcohol.
