FDM250 : Advanced FDM Maintenance

Your 3D printer was printing without a care in the world, and now it won’t even turn on! If you don’t properly maintain a machine, it can fail. Even our machines fail now and then. It's important to keep your equipment in tip-top shape, and FDM202 will show you how. In this workshop, we'll cover the basics of repair schedules and maintaining your printer as well as common hardware hiccups and how to repair them.

All 3D printers require some amount of routine maintenance to print well, and we consider FDM202 a necessary course for any ambitious maker who currently have or ultimately want a 3D printer of their own.

Select a location to enroll in a workshop, resume a quiz, or reserve equipment in your local instance of the MAP.

In this course, you'll learn:

  • The ability to effectively demonstrate simple repair techniques for common issues such as nozzle clogs or hobbed bolt grinding.

  • An understanding of preventive maintenance schedules for the most cartesian FDM 3D printers.

  • How to clean and service the build plates, extruders, and feeder mechanisms of commong FDM 3D printers.

  • Ability to diagnose common hardware problems, and how to tune the machines to address these issues.

  • An understanding of what to do when simple repair techniques don’t solve the problem.
