General Maintenance

In general, there are many recommendations when it comes to maintenance, but there are some that you should always keep in mind to extend the useful life of the product. 



A very important tip is to always keep your system dust-free and running in a cool, dry place. We suggest that the system operates in an environment with temperatures between 15ºC and 30ºC and relative humidity below 70%. Regarding the filaments, we advise the spools that are not currently in use are always stored inside the dehumidifier  chamber, which maintains a controlled environment with relative humidity below 40%


Activity Frequency Tools
Clean the system in general When necessary Cloth
Clean the sealing rubber. When necessary Cloth
Clean the inside of the dehumidifier chamber

When necessary (please note that is not recommended to open the chamber if not necessary, to maintain the correct humidity conditions)


Vacuum cleaner

Clean the wheels When necessary  Cloth
Check the wheels break Monthly -
Check the conditions of the bowdens tubes Monthly  -
Lubricate the guides of the dehumidifier module Quarterly Grease
Lubricate the guides of the tool tray Quarterly Grease


Firmware update

In BCN3D we want you to have a great experience, and to achieve this, we continually work to create new software updates for our products.  

To ensure that the system is equipped with the latest functions, it is recommended to keep the software updated to the latest version. 

Wireless updates are displayed on the printer screen to notify you when a new version is available, only when the printer is connected to the network.  

It is also possible to do it manually: visit the Knowledge base and follow the instructions.
