Using the Removable Build Plate

The ProJet® 160, 260C and 260Plus feature a removable Build Plate, which allows you to pick up the entire Build Plate and use it as a tray to transport very delicate parts to the Cleaning Station.
To remove the Build Plate follow the steps below.

  1. Open the printer top cover.
  2. Ensure that the Fast Axis is pushed all the way back into its parked position.
  3. Following the steps in the Coarse Cleaning section, vacuum as much Core as you can from around the part.
  4. From the Main Menu on the LCD, select ACCESS BUILD PLATE on the LCD menu. The Build Platform will move up above the top of the Build Box, exposing the Build Plate.
  5. After a short time the Build Platform will move back down.

  1. Gently lift the Build Plate (and the part) and place it in the Cleaning Station.
  2. When you have cleaned your part and removed it from the Build Plate, clean any remaining Core off the Build Plate.
  3. Thoroughly clean the underside of the Build Plate to remove any Core from the holes that mate with the Locating Pins. Also clean any Core off the Locating Pins.
  4. Return the Build Plate to the Printer. Be sure to align the Build Plate onto the Locating Pins.
