3D Printer Safety Instructions

Dos and don'ts

• Don’t put any liquids into your extruder.
Whether it’s boiling water, acetone, or anything in between, it’s not going to help and it could do a lot of harm.

• Don’t overheat your extruder.
We set temperature limits in our software for your safety and for the extruder’s safety, so don’t use anything other than the installed heaters to heat your extruder – don’t use blowtorches, and don’t detach parts of the extruder and put them in the oven.

• Don’t use sharp tools to remove objects from the build plate – using a knife or a razor blade to remove prints is just as likely to hurt you as it is to help.

• Don’t turn your printer off immediately after finishing a print.
Give the extruder fans time to cool the extruder first.

• Don’t drill out your extruder nozzle or drive any kind of metal tool through the nozzle. If you change the shape or size of your nozzle, the slicer will not be able to create accurate toolpaths.

• Don’t try to replace your extruder nozzles.
The nozzles are very securely attached to the extruder, and trying to remove them might result in the threaded portion of the nozzle shearing off and remaining inside the thermal core.

• Do make sure small and medium-sized prints work well before leaving your printer unattended for long prints.

• Do be careful with the ceramic insulation on your extruders’ thermal cores.
Hitting them with tools or gripping them with pliers might break off parts of the ceramic insulation.


Safety and compliance

Potential safety hazards that could harm you or others or cause product or property damage.
WARNING: The 3D Printer generates high temperatures.
Always allow the printer to cool down before reaching inside.

WARNING: The 3D Printer includes moving parts that can cause injury.
