Print core storage


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print core storage

New to the community. Appologies if this isn't the right place to ask this.


How are people storing their unused print cores on the S5?


I've got the 2 AA and 1 BB core that came with the printer and a CC core as well. Right now I'm leaving them in the foam of the accessory box and the CC in the cardboard box it came in, but that's a little scattered.


I found a box design on line I could print and store them in, but I worry about ESD.


Other thoughts?

    I store my print cores not in special ESD cases or such things. Some just lay around and for others I printed some holders which can attach to the printer side. Because I rarely change the print cores, I printed now holders which are just in a drawer to protect them from dust.


    I am just be careful to not touch the electronics on the print core, but the core itself is not so sensitive as you may think.
