1.0.3 Cautions
1).Security



Do not use other power supply other than the one provided by 3Djoy. JoysMaker 3D
printer power supply is designed with strict current control and defense mechanism.
The JoysMaker R3 generates high temperatures and has hot moving parts that can
cause injury. Never reach inside of the JoysMaker R3 while it is in operation.
Always control the R3 from the push wheel on the front or with the power-switch on
the back. Allow the machine to cool down for 5 minutes before reaching inside, the
temperature is as high as more than 200℃.


Unplug the wires, when moving the 3D printer; ensure the cord is disconnected from
the wall socket.
Check the connection of the wires is in good status before printing.
2).Protection







Waterproof rain, water.
Do not hit the frame to cause deformation.
Do not disassemble the machine, so as not to break the machine.
Long time not using the machine, seal the machine and store it. Next time you use it
you need to daub grease.
Do not press the printing head, or else the 6mm rod may bend, hence the printing
quality may be affected.
Unplug the wires during thunderstorm weather.
To replace the nozzle, you need to heat the nozzle firstly till the filament is melted.

JoysMaker R3 User Guide
1.3.2
Leveling the build plate
If the build plate is too far away from the nozzle
your 3D-print might not stick to the build plate.
Equally, if you adjust the build plate too close to
the nozzle, the build plate can block the filament
from extruding from the nozzle. It can also
scratch the build plate.
NOTE: After transportation you might want to
level your build plate to ensure your 3D prints
stick well to the build plate.
How to level the build plate
When leveling the build plate you must follow the
step 4/21 until 10/21 on the display where the
first step 4/21 controls the height by rotating this
button.
In the step 5/21 you rotate this left build plate
screw under the build plate to control the height
between the nozzle and the build plate.
In 6/21 you adjust a similar build plate screw on
the right hand side. Rotating left means closer to
the nozzle.
CAUTION: In these steps the print head will automatically move through the JoysMaker
R3. Also the Build plate will determine its destination by going up and down again.

3. Make sure the building plate is at the bottom of your JoysMaker R3, this is to prevent
you not damage you printhead or Z- axis.
4. Now you continue to slide the glass plate of the build plate to the front and take it out.
5. To dissolve and clean off the excess glue, place the glass plate carefully under normal
tap water and brush off the material.
WARNING. The glass plate is positioned on an electrical heating area so make sure it
really is dry.
6. Put it back in and slide the glass clamps back in the original position.
Note. To be sure that your next print will be successful you might want to level your build
plate. You can do this under [maintenance].

Change filament and material feeder
Removing filament
In the JoysMaker R3 the filament material can be changed. As you have learned in
previous steps there is no need to do this all by yourself because the JoysMaker R3 helps
you with that.
1. Go to the [MATERIAL] tab on the main menu of the display. Press the button: next go to
[CHANGE], this can be done by turning the wheel next to the screen. Press the button.
Note: firmware updates in the future may use a different terminology.

2. Your JoysMaker R3 will heat up so the material can be removed later. When the
required temperature is met, the feeder will turn by itself and retract the filament.
3. Rewind the filament on the filament spool and make sure it cannot uncoil at a later
moment (secure with hole in spool, tape or anything that works).
Feeding material
4. When you took the filament from the spool,
you (can) replace it with a new spool, follow
the instructions on the display.
5. In the last step of the instructions we make
sure that the printer knows what kind of
material you have inserted in your machine.
Select on the display the material that is
identified on the spool.
Clean material feeder
After a lot of printing, the wheel in the material
feeder can accumulate small plastic
particles.You can clean this by blowing air on
the wheel or using a simple brush.

Lubricant the axes
Z-Axis
After approximately every half year the
threaded rod on the z-stage has to be
lubricated.
.
X-Y-Axes
If you notice small wavers in the outside surfaces
of your 3D printed objects. It is recommended to
add a single drop of sewing machine oil onto the
X and Y steel axes bars. This will improve the
smooth movement of your JoysMaker R3.
If you choose to lubricate the X- and Y-axis you MUST use sewing machine oil.
Apply a maximum of one droplet oil on the axis.
Remove any excess oil.

Simple Troubleshooting tips
In case something goes wrong with your JoysMaker R3, the following chapter will help you.
From diagnosing and fixing the problem yourself to contacting support.
Print detaches during printing or print
does not stick at all.
Cause
Build plate is not properly leveled.
Solution
Follow the instructions under
[MAINTENANCE] and then [BUILD-PLATE]
Second cause
Material is not adhering to the build plate.
Solution
Using a thin layer of the supplied glue-stick as
discussed in chapter D4.
Print is stuck on the build plate.
Cause
Object is stuck on the build plate, even after
soaking in water. PLA or ABS has bonded
with the glass.
Solution
Use a spatula or another thin object such as a
wedge between the glass and the object.
Slowly push the wedge under the object from
different directions. If the object will not
release from the build plate try slightly tapping
the wedge.

Material feeder ticks when loading new material.
Cause
Material has reached the nozzle and is exiting the nozzle, the feeder cannot keep up
with the flow
Solution
While loading new material it is normal for the feeder to tick, the feeder is designed to
tick backwards instead of grinding the material.
Not enough material is released from the nozzle
Cause
Material feeder on the back of the JoysMaker R3 is ticking while printing. Nozzle is
blocked or partially blocked by dirt or burned material.
Solution
Increasing the print temperature to 260C while printing in an attempt to clear the
blockage. If the blockage is removed keep printing at 260C for at least 10 minutes to
clean out any residue.
Second cause
Printing at 260C does not solve the blockage.
Solution
Something larger than 0.4mm could be blocking the nozzle. Cleaning the nozzle or
replacing it is recommended. Contact support: [email protected] who will assist in
fixing your JoysMaker R3.
Material flow stops and material is ground down by the feeder.
Cause
Nozzle could be blocked or partially blocked.
Solution
See not enough material is released from the nozzle.
Second cause
Too much pressure is put on the material by the feeder.
Solution
Release the pressure on the feeder a bit by adjusting the build plate screw clockwise.
Third cause
Too little pressure is put on the material by the feeder, causing the material to slip.
Solution
Put more pressure on the feeder a bit by adjusting the pressure screw counter
clockwise.
