What media for test print on lef-12i?

Post by dorlov » Tue Jun 20, 2017 10:08 am

what media should I use for test print to check nozzles?

Especially white and gloss ones.

Also, should I check nozzles at the beginning and end of work every day?

Any non-white gloss surface will do fine.

Always check nozzles before starting your work and never print with a clogged nozzle(s).

I use PET-G as I have boxes of the stuff, or acetate will do nicely. Its the best way IMO as you even see the gloss.
