Maintenance schedule

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have 3 Ultimaker 2+ machines that run almost constantly. I regularly clean and lubricate them and change the TFM coupler as required.

I was wondering if there is a recommended maintenance schedule for the other parts?

I notice that a Ultimaker 2+ maintenance kit is available containing the following parts:

PT100 B Sensor Glass Fiber

TFM 2x

Fan Pack

Bowden Tube Pack

Olsson Nozzle 0.4

Hot End Isolator

Pulley Pack

Glass Plate

Build Platform Glass Retainer Back (2x)

Calibration Card

Sliding Blocks 4x

Magnalube / Grease

Timing Belt GT2 200 (2x)

Timing Belt GT2 610 (4x)

Heater Cartridge 24V 35W

Injection Molding Part/Print Head Aid

Sewing Machine Oil

How often should I change the parts in this kit?

There are two TFM couplers, does this mean I should change all the belts, glass plate and nozzle every time I change the TFM coupler twice?

I've never change the nozzle (I only print non abrasive PLA), should I expect to need to change it? and how often?

I will be interested to know if there is an official recommended maintenance schedule and what other people actually do?

Thanks

Peter

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
