Adjusting The Jet Wiper

The jet wiper is designed to scrape the print jet tip, removing any waste material remaining after extrusion.

  1. Remove the lid from the top of the printer.
  2. Ensure the print pad is at its lowest position.
  3. Power off the printer and disconnect it from utility power.
  4. Holding the extruder assembly, gently position it over the jet wiper assembly.

  1. Verify the wiper blade meets the tapered portion (A) of the print jet tip. If it does, the jet wiper is properly adjusted. Proceed to step 8.

NOTE: If the wiper tip is too high, proceed to the next step. If the wiper tip is too low, proceed to step 7.

  1. If the wiper blade is too high, remove the jet wiper assembly and turn the adjustment thumbscrew (A) clockwise. Reinstall the jet wiper and return to step 5.

  1. If the wiper tip is too low, remove the jet wiper assembly and turn the adjustment thumbscrew (A) counter-clockwise. Reinstall the jet wiper and return to step 5.

  1. Once satisfied with the adjustment, you may connect your printer to utility power and power on the printer.
