Repaper Ring positioning
☑️ Properly slide Repaper Ring
For an optimal drawing experience and an accurate digital rendering, it is important to slide the Repaper Ring magnet properly on your drawing tool:
Slide Repaper Ring to about 3 to 4 cm (1,2”-1,6”) from the tip.
Adjust its positioning so that it is completely perpendicular to your drawing implement.
☑️ Verify the ring's position in the Repaper Studio App:
Connect Repaper to Repaper Studio, then click on "Draw".
Place your drawing tool perpendicular to Repaper, with the tip in contact with the sheet of paper (front LED 2 shines green)
Turn your drawing implement right round in order to draw a small dot on the paper. As you are doing this, be sure to keep the drawing implement perpendicular to the sheet of paper and in contact with it at a single point.
Results & verification on the screen:
If you see a dot on the screen, Repaper Ring is properly positioned. ✔️
If you see a small circle, Repaper Ring is incorrectly positioned.⚠️
