THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS
RailCore II 300ZL 3D printer

The RailCore is a CoreXY-style printer which is a very accurate and fast. It uses a Bondtech extruder with an E3D V6 hotend, and extremely presice Misumi linear rails to guide movement on every axis. Currently, the nozzle is a 0.4mm abrasion-resistant nozzle that can be used with all filaments. This is a more advanced printer than the Prusa or Xinkebot, but don't worry, it's actually fairly easy to operate. It runs using RepRap firmware on a Duet Ethernet board.

Most of this is extra background information. Homing and leveling are taken care of in the slicer (Simplify3D) beginning scripts so you should be OK. You should not need to do any calibration such as Bed Mesh creation or any other advanced operations. The bed should be level and very flat as is.

Beginning Steps:
1. Turn on the RailCore using the switch at the bottom rear of the electronics box on the right side of the printer.
2. Watch the readout on the LED panel above the electronics box for the assigned IP address. If you forget it, you can always press the "console" button at the bottom of the screen.
3. Using any computer on the IthacaGenerator g wireless, type the IP address in any browser such as Chrome or Firefox. You should see the "Duet Web Control" interface.
