Clean the Printhead

The bottom of the carriage on the ProJet® CJP x60 series printers may get covered with a combination of powder and cleaning solution from the service station. As a preventative step, it is recommended to inspect or clean the bottom of the carriage before each build.

  1. From the UI, select BUILD CHAMBER.




  1. Lower Build Platform by holding down the Control Knob until the Build Platform lowers approximately 3 inches.
  2. Place provided magnetic mirror on the center of the Build Platform.


  1. Guide Carriage directly over mirror.


  1. Inspect Printhead for any debris that may have collected during a previous build.


If Printhead needs to be cleaned because of excessive debris build up, use the following steps:

  1. Moisten a paper towel with distilled water.
  2. Wipe the bottom of the carriage with paper towel. This should just take one or two passes of the paper towel. It does not have to be 100% clean, the goal is to minimize the build up of powder, especially on the surface just behind the print heads.
