The procedure that follows gives instructions on how to inspect and clean the AON-M2 and AON-M2 2020 build plates.
Estimated time: 30 minutes
A build plate in good condition helps:
|1||Scraper, Metal||Sharp edge|
|1||Scraper, Plastic||Thin, Flexible|
|1||Hex Key||2.5 mm|
|1||Hex Key||3 mm|
|1||Hex Drive Bit||2.5 mm|
|1||Socket||2.5 mm, 1/4 inch drive|
|1||Torque Wrench||0-10 Nm range, calibrated|
|1||Safety Eyewear||ANSI/ISEA Z87.1|
|1||Safety Footwear||EN ISO 20345 or ASTM F2413|
|A/R||Nitrile Gloves||ISO 2859-1 or ASTM D6319|
Make sure that there are no prints on the build surface. Remove print(s) before the procedure that follows is started. Failure to do so can cause a collision and cause damage to the machine component(s).
Wait until all machine components are at room temperature before you continue. Some machine components can be hot if the machine was recently used. Failure to do so can cause injuries.
• Do not use a wire brush on the Kapton® polyimide tape. The use of a wire brush can cause damages to the Kapton® polyimide tape.
• Do not use a wire brush on the bare aluminum build plate. The use of a wire brush will damage the print surface.
If unwanted materials cannot be removed from the High-Temperature Build Plate, the use of 220-grit sandpaper can be used sparingly to avoid creating an uneven surface. Otherwise it is recommended to resurface the High-Temperature Build Plate. Refer to Resurface the High-Temperature Build Plate.
If unwanted materials cannot be removed from the low-temperature build plate, replace the Kapton® polyimide tape. Refer to Replace Kapton® Polyimide Tape.
If the damage build plate print surface is small, it is possible to print on a section that is not damaged.
If the Nano Polymer Adhesive layer on the build surface is still acceptable and required for the next print, cleaning the build surface with isopropyl alcohol can be skipped.
Do not tighten the two flathead screws found on the dovetail locks. Only tighten the set screw that is found at the center of the dovetail lock.
