 +It is very easy to use, in summary:
  
-Turn it on and the 3D printer PC and start Windows.+  * Turn it on
 +  * Run Metaza Studio. 
 +  * Put a piece of material to engrave in the machine in the centre. Clamp **firmly**. Polished aluminium works well but you can use any metal or plastic. 
 +  * Select material shape in Metaza Studio ​and set the size to match your actual material. 
 +  * Create your design, keep the material shape in the centre. 
 +  * Then click Print. Select “Properties/​Image Correction” ​and set the material type and resolution. Click OK to start
 +  * The engraver head automatically lowers down to find the surface of the material. The head tracks the surface so you can print on curved surfaces within certain limits.
  
-Run Metaza Studio it is pinned to startup menu and taskbar. +There are many other ways to use the machine, read the User Manual [[http://​support.rolanddga.com/​Docs/​Documents/​departments/​Technical%20Services/​Manuals%20and%20Guides/​MPX-90_USE_EN_R2.pdf|here]].
