The wheels of the machine are made of POM and will wear in a little after a while. Also, the wheels will catch some dust which remains there. This is possible to be seen in the print result. For an optimal print result clean the wheels by following these steps:

  1. Lower the print head by moving the printer to the maintenance location. Press Macro > Maintenance
  2. Take a light wet cloth/towel and place them on the wheel you’re going to clean. Turn around the wheel with your finger to clean all dust from it.
  3. After cleaning all wheels clean the poles where the wheels run over too

The linear slide of the printer needs to be clean all time. For an optimal print result clean the linear rails by following these steps:

  1. Lower the print head by moving the printer to the maintenance location. Press Macro > Maintenance
  2. Take a dry cloth/towel to manually clean the linear slide.
