Loading Nylon

Install nylon cartridges using the Change Cartridge utility in the Setup menu. Once the cartridge has been installed, it is important to purge the print jets to remove all previously used print material that may remain in the extruder assembly.

  1. Navigate to the Print Jet Calibration screen and select CONTROL JETS.

  1. Select the print jet that has been loaded with nylon print material.

  1. Select the target temperature value. Select the up arrow until the target temperature value reaches 275°C.

NOTE: To increase or decrease the temperature value, press the up or down arrow.

NOTE: The current temperature reading will appear above the target temperature value.

  1. Once the temperature has reached 275°C, select the speed value. Use the up or down arrows to set the speed value to 3.5 RPM.

NOTE: Pressing the speed value twice will place the value at 4.0 RPM. Press the up or down arrows to increase or decrease the extrusion speed.

  1. ​Allow the print jet to purge for 10 minutes.

NOTE: Purging will clean all previous print material out of the nozzle for better print quality.

NOTE: The amount of purged material will amount to a small bundle of material strings.

  1. Once you have finished, reduce the target speed to 0.0 RPM and the target temperature to 0.0°C.

NOTE: Pressing the values twice for target temperature and speed should change the values to 0.0.
