To keep your Ultimaker S5 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 print core CC Red 0.6 the maintenance frequency and actions will be slightly different. Please look at the print core CC Red 0.6 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.
