Maintenance of your Nimble¶
The Nimble needs very little maintenance. Just a simple cleaning every now and then. Because it is difficult to measure it in working hours we decided to specify the maintenance per spool printed. Without further ado, for the longevity of your Nimble we recommend you use the following maintenance schedule.
After printing a full spool of 750 gr or 1 kg, we recommend the following actions:
- Blow out chaff from inside, using the vents provided.
- Blow out chaff from breech, when opened.
Every 5 spools¶
After printing 5 full spools of 750 gr or 1 kg, we recommend the following actions:
- All of the above.
- Check if the gears are still properly lubed, add a little if needed.
- Open the breech to check the teeth of the hob. They are easy to clean, if needed using a tooth brush. (what else?)
For the rest there is very little to do in regards to maintenance. We have tried to make the Nimble as easy to maintain as it is to use, but if you have any suggestions how we can improve and simplify, we would be very happy to hear from you.
