Setup Guide

In case you lost or miss this cutting fixture in your LGX Lite Arrow package, download and print its STL model. Click the following link to download: LGX Lite Arrow Capricorn Cutting Fixture

You can also cut the Capricorn tube without the fixture. Find instructions at step #4.

To use the LGX Lite Arrow on your CR-6 SE, CR-6 Max or CR-10 Smart, there is no need to remove the stock filament sensor or extruder out of place.

You can, and should, feed the LGX Lite Arrow using the same filament path as before upgrading.

Just unlock the stock extruder. Open the extruder lever and feed the filament through it and through the bowden tube.

Then connect the bowden tube to the LGX Lite push-fit collet.

If you have a CR-6 SE or CR-6 Max, you may move the filament sensor and flat cable to the front of the gantry.

Click the link below to check how we did it.
How To Install a LGX on the CR-6

You will need to download and print the Runout Sensor Mount:

And partially follow this video that shows the removal of the extruder and installation of the mount:

How to do it

Check this animation to see how to insert the square nuts.

For ease of visualization, check below the differences regarding the cable setup between the CR-6 and the CR-10 Smart.

In the CR-6 setup presented below, we moved the filament sensor to the front of the gantry, using the method and STL models available here:

Connecting to the frame's breakout board

The stepper motor cable of the LGX Lite will be connected to the breakout board attached to the printer frame at the left hand side of the gantry.

Swapping wires of the stepper motor cable

All generic Bondtech extruders are geared. When a geared extruder is used to upgrade a non-geared extruder printer, the feeding direction will reverse.

For that reason, it is necessary to invert the stepper motor rotation by swapping a couple of wires.

On the LDO motors we supply with the LGX Lite, you must swap the left hand-side or the right hand-side pair of wires. Check the LDO stepper motor TDS here if you need to.

Using the image as guide, swap the green wire with the red. Here is how to do it:

  1. push the red wire further into the connector
  2. push down the metal tab (where the arrow is pointing to)
  3. pull the red wire out
  4. do the same with the green
  5. lift the tabs back up (using a sharp tool)
  6. now push the red wire into the 2nd slot
  7. push the green wire into the 1st slot

Done : )
you may know connect the stepper motor.

Set the proper e-steps value

The LGX Lite uses an e-value equal to 562 when using 16 microsteps;

"Print" the following g-code file to set the e-steps value to 562 : click here to download

This file uses the M92 command to change the e-steps value and saves it with the M500.

Mind that we have this also set on the Start G-code we supply below.

Set the proper Stepper Motor current

The LGX Lite's stepper motor must be fed with current below 750mA.
500mA is the recommended value.

Click here to download TXT file

The file linked above includes 2 sections of text each named Start G-code and End G-code respectively.
Copy the code of each(from the .txt file linked above) and paste it to replace the whole slicer's Start or End G-code associated with your printer using this upgrade.

Check the “Print Profiles” tab to download ready to work print settings for PLA.

Print Profiles

We currently have the following Print Profiles to use the LGX Lite Arrow:

The profile above can also be used on the CR-6 Max and CR-10 Smart, just by adding these new printers to the Printer Settings list.Change the bed shape and Z-height and save the Printer Settings with a new name.
