3D Printer Maintenance: Preventive and Corrective Tasks

  • Charles Bell


Maintaining your 3D printer involves a number of simple things you need to do frequently, like checking the condition of the printer for adjustment and breakage. I refer to these tasks as “basic maintenance tasks.” Maintenance also involves more complex tasks that need to be done less often to keep the printer running well (“preventive tasks”) and tasks that need to be done when something breaks (“corrective tasks”).
