Print Tests

To better diagnose certain printer issues, your service provider may request that you print one or more of the test builds built into the printer firmware. This section will briefly describe what you can expect to see in each test.

Test Pattern 1

This test exists to diagnose many different print-quality issues. It will print the image seen at the right. Your service provider will instruct you on providing them information about it. print-test-1.jpg

Test Pattern 2

This test exists to diagnose issues with the printhead jets. Your service provider might also call this a "jet check." This will print a few dark layers below a few white layers, and finally will print rows of dots for each binder color. You can then take a picture of the dots to send to your service provider for analysis. print-test-2.jpg
