Insects Getting into Printer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Insects Getting into Printer


Has anyone else had the problem of occasionally getting bugs in their printer? I usually find them around the print cores (see attached picture). We've got the S5 Bundle on a stand and it's cut down on the problem, but we still get some from time to time.


If you've had this problem, what did you do to fix it?

    Bug reports should really be made on Github but I'll try to help.

    • Level your bed.
    • Print some more little yellow stickers but put "Keep Out" on them.
    • Moth Balls.  (Although getting them off the moths can be tough).
    • Nothing flammable/combustible.  Mesh aluminum screen might impede the air flow of the fans.
    • Speaking of the fans - I'm surprised you could hear the little screams over the fan noise when the hot ends came to life.

    I have to go now because my tongue is cramping up from being stuck in my cheek.
