NOTE: For optimal results, keep stored cartons closed and sealed until material cartridges are ready for use.

Always check material “Recertification Date” (A) before use. Do not load material cartridges into printer if cartridge date has expired. When printer detects an expired cartridge, it aborts the build and rejects the cartridge. 

 

 

  • Support (white) material must be loaded in the left side of material drawer. VisiJet part (black) material cartridges must be loaded in the right side of material drawer. Before loading cartridges into printer, inspect the cartridges for signs of damage or leakage. Do not load a damaged or leaking cartridges. Dispose of material cartridge according to local regulations

Storing a Partially Used Material Cartridges 

  • It is important not to lay material cartridges that are partially used on their side. Doing so will cause material to seep through the vent cap and clogging cap. This will cause damage to the material cartridge if used for a later build.
  • To store a partially used material cartridges, insert cartridge into a plastic bag with the vent cap up; place cartridge into its original shipping carton’s sleeves and carton. Do not remove a partially used Support Bottle from the MDM if the MDM is NOT heating; the material will solidify and cause a breakage.
