The small refillable spray works very well to clean the print bed. Fill it with cleaning liquid (recommended: Denatured alcohol) and spray a bit on top of the print bed each time before you start a new print.
Tweezers make it much easier to carefully peel of a 3D printed object from the print bed. It is also a very useful tool to remove any filament residue from the hot-ends.
During normal usage the kapton foil will be of good quality for a long time. If it occurs the foil gets damaged or you start to see ‘shadows’ from previous prints, you might want to change the current foil for a new one.
Filament Dust Cleaners
The Dust Cleaners are placed in the guidance tool that guides the filament to the hot-ends. Filament is very often loaded with static electricity, causing dust to stick to the filament. To prevent any dust to be taken into the hot-ends, dust cleaners are used. To make sure the filament will be guided to the hot-ends without any dirt, new dust cleaners need to be placed in the guidance tool once in a while.
At some point the tip of a hot-end will be worn out. Usually this only happens after heavy usage but working with exotic filaments (like glow-in-the-dark filament) may speed up the process. Worn out nozzles are visibly recognizable due to the 'flat' tip.
Extra set of hot-ends
Want to use one set of hot-ends for special filaments? Or you want to have an extra set of hot-ends available in case something happens? Having a spare set of hot-ends will prevent any delay when you really need to finish an important 3D print!
0.35 mm cleaning drill
Sometimes a little piece of material is blocking the tip of the extruder. If extra heat or other tricks do not solve the issue, a small drill can be the solution.
