Ultimaker 3 Maintenance Kit

The Ultimaker 3 Maintenance kit contains the most commonly used parts for maintenance or replacement on the Ultimaker 3 or Ultimaker 3 Extended. It can be purchased in addition to your Ultimaker and used as an overall maintenance kit, or it can be used for spare parts.

Below you can find an overview of all the parts that are included in the maintenance kit.

  1. 2x Bowden tube
  2. 1x XY calibration sheet

To find out how to use or replace a specific part, search in the menu on the right, or click on the name of a part to be guided to a page with instructions.

Please note that there are no separate pages for the XY calibration sheet, calibration card, and hex screwdriver. The XY calibration sheet is used to calibrate the offset between the two print cores. The calibration card can be used to manually level the build plate. Instructions on how to use these items can be found in the Ultimaker 3 manual. The hex screwdriver is needed to perform repairs and maintenance.

Maintenance schedule

To keep your Ultimaker 3 in optimal condition we recommend the following maintenance schedule, based on 1,500 printing hours per year:

Every month   Every 3 months  Every year 
Clean printer   Check for play on axles   Clean feeders and replace Bowden tubes
Lubricate axles   Check tension of short belts  
  Check for residue in front fan of print head

Note: If the usage frequency is higher, we recommend performing more frequent maintenance on your machine to ensure optimal printing results.
