- You have just set up your brand new Robox.
- You have changed the colour of filament you are printing with.
- You have been printing for several hours.
- You notice the quality of your prints getting worse.
Step 1First, expand the side bar in Robox AutoMaker. To do this, click on the image of the three white dots near the left hand side of the screen.
Step 2From the tabs at the top of the expanded menu select 'Maintenance'.
Step 3Find the button called 'Purge Material' and click on it.
Step 4The main section of the screen will change to a page titled 'Purge Material'. Click the arrow at the bottom right of the screen.
Step 5The purge temperature will be shown on the screen. Here you can alter the purge temperature, but we recommend using the temperature that AutoMaker suggests.
Step 6The printer will now begin to heat the bed, once the bed is at temperature the nozzle will heat to a working temperature then the purge process will begin. Several lines of material will be printed with the printer alternating between using the fine and thicker nozzle. The thin lines should have a 'curly' shape and the thicker lines should be smooth and flat, as pictured below.
