1. Check Filament Spool: Before loading, ensure the filament spool unwinds correctly. It might be cross-threaded in storage, leading to print failures.
  2. Correct Filament Size: Verify if older PLA spools fit the Automatic Material Supply (AMS). If not, consider re-spooling or using a filament holder instead.
  3. Print Bed Alignment: Make sure the print bed is properly seated to avoid corners getting stuck on the guide rail plastic piece.
  4. Material Compatibility: Understand material interactions. For example, PETG won’t stick to Nylon and can deform PLA underneath. Avoid interchanging these materials.
  5. Moisture Absorption: Keep the AMS door closed to prevent filament from absorbing moisture, rendering it unprintable within hours.
  6. Filament Changes: Minimize filament changes, especially within layers, to avoid excessive purging and waste.
  7. Layer Adhesion in Multimaterial Prints: Ensure sufficient purging to prevent leftover material from compromising layer adhesion in multimaterial prints.
  8. Handle Prints Carefully: Use provided tools instead of fingers to remove prints to avoid injury or damaging delicate prints.
  9. Unload Filament Properly: Utilize the “Unload filament” feature on the 3D printer touchscreen to prevent damage to the filament or AMS.
  10. Proper Print Bed Maintenance: Clean the soft heat pad and print bed before attaching. Ensuring flatness within 0.05mm of z-height is crucial for adhesion.
