To keep your Ultimaker S-line printer 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 the printer (1)||Check for play on the axles||Lubricate the feeder gear|
|Lubricate the axles (2)||Check tension of short belts||Replace the Bowden tubes|
|Check for debris in front fan of print head||Clean system fans|
|Check quality of nozzle cover (1)||Lubricate hinges|
|Lubricate lead screw Z motor|
|Clean the feeders|
|Clean the print cores (1)|
(1) If you use a CC print core the maintenance frequency and actions will be slightly different. Please look at the CC print core maintenance page for more information.
(2) The X, Y and Z axles do not need lubrication for the first year of using the printer. After this, they should be lubricated monthly.
Tip: If the usage frequency is higher, we recommend performing more frequent maintenance on your printer to ensure optimal printing results.
