To find out how to use or replace a specific part, search in the menu on the right, or click on the name of a part to be guided to a page with instructions.
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 repairs and maintenance.
To keep your Ultimaker 3 in optimal condition we recommend the following maintenance schedule, based on 1,500 printing hours per year:
|Every month||Every 3 months||Every year|
|Clean printer||Check for play on axles||Clean feeders and replace Bowden tubes|
|Lubricate axles||Check tension of short belts|
|Check for residue in front fan of print head|

Note: If the usage frequency is higher, we recommend performing more frequent maintenance on your machine to ensure optimal printing results.
