Using Advanced Material

Printing with advanced materials requires the purchase of both the advanced material upgrade and the nozzle upgrade kit. After purchasing the advanced material upgrade, you will receive an 8-digit activation code that will be required to activate the printer functionality. To print advanced materials, nozzle 2 must be replaced with the special nozzle designed specifically for advanced materials.

CAUTION: Nozzles designed for standard materials should never be used to print advanced materials.

Advanced materials include:

  • Wood
  • INF
  • FLEX

NOTE: Refer to the print jet replacement guide when installing the nozzle upgrade kit.
