Print Core Cleaning Maintenance

Every printer requires regular maintenance to ensure that it lasts through your every print and ready for your next big idea. Maintenance of the BB print core should be performed once every three months. Using the Ultimaker cleaning filament is the most effective way to clean and unclog the BB print core on the Ultimaker S5. Cleaning filament can be used to clean the print core on an Ultimaker S5 by applying hot and cold pulls. Hot pulls are used to get the biggest parts of degraded material out of the print core and are especially necessary when a print core is clogged. With a cold pull, the remaining small particles will be pulled out, ensuring the print core is completely clean.
