Calibrating The Wipe Function

WARNING: DO NOT USE THE OFFSET JETS MENU UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED TO DO SO BY CUBIFY SUPPORT. CHANGES TO THESE SETTINGS WILL AFFECT PRINTER OUTPUT. CALIBRATION WAS PERFORMED BY THE FACTORY AND ANY CHANGES TO THESE SETTINGS MUST BE GUIDED BY CUBIFY SUPPORT.

As the printer extrudes print material through the print jets, print material may sometimes adhere to the print jet tips. The printer firmware moves the print jets over the jet wiper assembly blade to scrape excess print material from the print jets. If the setting for the Wipe function is not properly set, the print jets may not reach the jet wiper assembly blade and the hardened excess print material may be released into the next print.

The factory settings position the print jets about .25”/6.35 mm in front of the jet wiper assembly blade.

  1. Browse to the Print Jet Calibration screen and select OFFSET JETS.

  1. Press the Wipe value repeatedly to scroll through the digits. Press the up arrow to move the print jets forward and the down arrow to move the print jets backward.

NOTE: Increasing the value moves the print jets toward the front of the printer. Decreasing the value moves the print jets toward the back of the printer.

  1. Select the checkmark to continue.
  2. Print a small test file and verify the print jets move over the jet wiper assembly blade after extruding print material.
