Hi Lee,
The blue heat sinks need to be pressed on and 'wiggled' to get them to stick. Using some alcohol on the board will help make sure it's free of grease and flux and help the heat sinks adhere better, also their glue is heat activated so holding them on for 30seconds with your thumb will heat their glue so they stick better.

Only one power cable is needed from the Einsy board power connectors to the Swapper3D power supply. Yes on the 3D printer Einsy board there are 2 power inputs but you only need to connect the Swapper power wire to one(1) of those connectors, it also doesn't matter which one you connect to, just as long as the red wire goes to positive (+) and the black wire goes to negative (-).

 

Does that make sense?

I'm sorry for the confusion. Those are not 2 power wires. 1 power wire, and 1 serial line are shown in that picture.

We are making updates to the manual to clarify these things. The manual is very new, you are the first person to use it so you're finding all the issues 😉

You should use Octoprint to sync the printer and the Swapper3D and then you only need the Power wire and NOT the serial wire.

Everyone, and every configuration, including using the palette, does require Octoprint to work with the Swapper3D.

@lee-lemieux 

You don't need to buy anything else, but it does need to run on a computer of some kind like a windows/mac/raspberry pi/android device. You can use the one you slice models on.
You can read about our decision here in this public kickstarter post
