How to make a starter circuit!

If you purchased a printer kit it will come with all the components needed to make a two of a simple circuit that lights up when you press a button.

It is very strongly advised that you read through the entirety of Cartridge Care before continuing with this tutorial.

Start by downloading our software from here.

Incase you're having trouble finding the kit this is what it looks like:

The first thing we're going to do is check that there are no parts missing from the kit. You should have all the components shown in this photo:

From top to bottom left to right these components are: Shipping decoys, buttons, LEDs resistors. You might be confused by the card like devices that are lab led dculex. Due to shipping regulations we are not able to ship lithium batteries unless they are contained inside an electronic device. This was the cheapest electronic device we could find and contains the CR1220 batteries we'll use in the circuit.

Once you've checked that your kit isn't missing anything you can get started printing the circuit that goes with it!
