The system set-up involves installing the milling machine, the suction unit, the pressurized-air connector and the control PC. You also need to connect the power supply and turn on the machine. Here are some instructions:
Place the milling machine on a stable and level surface. Make sure there is enough space around it for ventilation and access.
Place the suction unit next to or under the milling machine. Connect one end of the suction hose to the suction port on the back of the machine, and the other end to the inlet port on the suction unit.
Connect one end of the pressurized-air hose to the pressurized-air connector on the back of the machine, and the other end to a compressed-air source. Make sure that there is no water or oil in the compressed air.
Connect one end of the USB cable to the USB port on the back of the milling process through a camera on your control software.
Check for errors by looking for warning or error messages on your control software or on your milling machine. You can also check the quality and accuracy of your milled restoration by inspecting it visually or with a scanner.
You have now completed the milling process.
