The Maintenance kit contains the most commonly used parts for maintenance or replacement on the Ultimaker 3 or Ultimaker 3 Extended. The kit can be purchased in addition to your Ultimaker and can be used as an overall maintenance kit or as a backup spare part kit.
Click on the name of a part to be guided to a page with instructions on how to use or replace that part. Please note that there are no separate pages for the XY calibration sheet, calibration card and hex screwdriver.
The XY calibration sheet is used to calibrate the offset between the two print cores. The calibration card can be used to manually level the build plate. Instructions on how to use these items can be found in the Ultimaker 3 manual. The hex screwdriver is needed to perform the repairs.
To keep your Ultimaker 3 in optimal condition we recommend the following maintenance schedule, based on 1500 printing hours a year.
|Every month||Every 3 months||Every year|
