  • 30. Routine Operation A. PREPARING THE BUILD AREA Technical Tip •Keep powder containers closed when not in use to keep powder dry. •Scoop powder carefully to minimize airborne powder •Make sure that you carefully vacuum up excess powder. It only takes a minute, and the tidier the machine is, the less often it will need maintenance! •Carefully read the Material Safety Data Sheet for powder before use.
  • 31. Routine Operation B. CLEANING THE SERVICE STATION The Service Station cleans the array of the print heads during printing. The Service Station MUST be cleaned before every build. This will remove any deposits of powder. Make sure Parking Caps are dry before beginning a build.
  • 32. 1. Select Unpark on the Service menu in ZPrint, which will move the carriage out of the parking position, allowing access to the Service Station. Routine Operation STEP 1 B. CLEANING THE SERVICE STATION
  • 33. 2. With the Service Station exposed, rinse rubber Parking Cap with distilled water (If needed, remove rubber Parking Caps and rinse under running water). Wipe dry with paper towel. Routine Operation STEP 2 B. CLEANING THE SERVICE STATION PLEASE NOTE: Make sure the Parking Caps are sitting flat in their holders.
  • 34.  3. Clean squirt manifold holes by carefully inserting the luer lock needle into the squirt manifold holes. DO NOT PRESS HARD. The needle should go in. Clean one by one all six holes. Be careful not to scratch or score holes. Routine Operation STEP 3 B. CLEANING THE SERVICE STATION
  • 35.  4. Rinse rubber wiper blade with distilled water and wipe dry with paper towel. Ensure that there is no powder buildup anywhere in the proximity of the rubber wiper. Routine Operation STEP 4 B. CLEANING THE SERVICE STATION

  • 38. 1. Open front cabinet tray Routine Operation STEP 1 C.CHECKING FLUID LEVEL
  • 39. 2. Check wash fluid level. If it is less than half full, refill wash fluid bottle. Routine Operation STEP 2 C.CHECKING FLUID LEVEL
  • 40.  3. Check waste fluid. If it is half full, empty fluid. Empty contents in accordance to local or company safety regulations. Close front cabinet tray Routine Operation STEP 3 C.CHECKING FLUID LEVEL
  • 41. Routine Operation C.CHECKING FLUID LEVEL WARNING Do not recycle waste solution. The waste is contaminated with powder and use of this waste in the your 3D Printer will clog the fluid system. Use only binder and wash fluid supplied by Z Corporation. Use of any other material may impact the performance and safety of your 3D Printer System and will void the warranty.
  • 42. 4. Check binder bottles. The Z510 3D Printer is not equipped with binder level sensors. The user must check the binder levels prior to each build to ensure the Z510 3D Printer has enough to complete the build. View the binder levels through the cutout windows in the binder bottle cover on the top cover. If it is half full, fill binder bottles. Routine Operation STEP 4 C.CHECKING FLUID LEVEL PLEASE NOTE: When printing in monochrome it is still necessary to have binder in the color bottles for servicing.
  • 43. Routine Operation C.CHECKING FLUID LEVEL WARNING If this is the first time you have added binder to the binder bottle on the Z510 3D Printer you must bleed the air out of the lines. Please refer to Bleed Air for detailed instructions on how to perform this important procedure. Air in the binder fluids system will cause premature print head burnout, resulting in more frequent replacement.
  • 44. 1. Determine which print head needs to be changed. This is done either by an error message during printing, or by accessing the Print Head Report command located on the ZPrint Service menu. Routine Operation STEP 1 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 45. 2. Place the printer Online. Routine Operation STEP 2 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD 3. Select Service > Change Print Heads > Start. When you click Start in the Change Print Heads dialog, the printer moves the Carriage over to the opposite side of the Fast Axis for easy access. STEP 3
  • 46. 4. Open printer top cover and then open the Carriage cover. Routine Operation STEP 4 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 47. 5. Remove the print head(s) you need to change. Routine Operation STEP 5 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 48. 6. Take an alcohol swab and clean the pogo pins. Routine Operation STEP 6 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 49. 7. Re-insert a new print head(s) and press down. Press firmly on both ends of the print head to secure into place. Routine Operation STEP 7 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD 8. Close the Carriage cover. STEP 8
  • 50. 9. Using a moist paper towel, wipe the alignment window located on the bottom, left side of the Carriage. Dry off with a dry paper towel and close the printer top cover. Routine Operation STEP 9 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 51. 10. Click Done on the Change Print Heads dialog. Routine Operation STEP 10 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 52. 11. Select Service > Purge Print Heads. You can choose to purge only a new print head or all of the print heads. The printer will purge the print head(s) of all of its ink and replace it with binder Routine Operation STEP 11 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 53. 12. When purging is completed, return to the Service menu and select Auto Alignment. Routine Operation STEP 12 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 54. 13. The printer will print out an alignment pattern. The first several layers will be gray-based and then the color alignment pattern is printed. Routine Operation STEP 13 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 55. 14. The last part of the color alignment pattern that is printed is a bulls-eye pattern for you to confirm that all print heads are aligned. A good alignment will look like the example below where the color does not overlap into the red circle. If the alignment is not good, try cleaning the sensor window again and rerun the Auto Alignment. If the pattern still fails, call your local service provider. Routine Operation STEP 14 D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD
  • 56. Routine Operation D. CHANGE PRINT HEAD STEP 14 Please Note: You may wish to start a build while the print heads are aligning. To do so, click Cancel to close the Auto Align dialog. The part builds on top of the alignment pattern. If you choose to begin a build before the alignment is finished, you will be unable to confirm the bulls-eye pattern for proper print head alignment.
