Polyjet Desktop Flush/Fill Wizard

Using the Material Flush/Fill wizard before and after an extended period of inactivity (more than one week) ensures proper printer maintenance and quality printing. Each time you run the wizard you select one of the following processes:

  • Draining printing materials and flushing the system with cleaning fluid

Use this process to prepare the printer for a shutdown of more than one week. This process takes about 60 minutes and requires four (4) cleaning-fluid cartridges in the materials drawer.

  • Filling the system with printing materials

Use this process to restore the printer to working condition. This process takes about 30 minutes and requires two (2) cartridges of Model material and two (2) cartridges of Support material in the materials drawer.

  • After more than one week of inactivity, drain and flush the system if this was not previously done. In this case, run the wizard twice before printing—first, to drain old printing material and clean the system, and again, to fill it with fresh material.

To run the Material Flush/Fill wizard:

  1. Start Material Flush/Fill wizard from the Options menu.
  2. In the opening screen, click Next.
