How to clean the printer casing:

Time needed: Approximately two minutes

Maintenance frequency: Print-by-Print

Overview: The printer’s metal casing protects the internal components from damage. To avoid spilling material on the casing, always hold a paper towel under the build platform and the material tray while installing or removing. Once spilled, the material cures to the casing and it is difficult to remove it.


1. Wipe the spilled material as soon as it touches the printer before it cures. 

2. Remove the majority of the spill with a dry paper towel first, then lightly spray a second paper towel with IPA and wipe away any residue. 

If rubbed with too much pressure or for too long, the casing may become discolored.
