How often do I have to replace the drive line/cable?
What are the F410’s regular maintenance items?
The print bed should be cleaned and prepared between prints by spraying with water and wiping clean. You will occasionally check the tension of the drive line system and adjust as needed. Other periodic maintenance includes leveling the print bed and removing any debris from the extruder. Inspecting the hotend and removing any plastic that may be stuck there and checking alignment. The Operations Guide describes the maintenance in detail (found on the manuals/downloads page).
How often will I have to level the print bed?
Does the F410 require any kind of ongoing calibration?
How often do I have to adjust the tension in the drive line/cable?
In normal use, you likely will not have to adjust the tension, but should be checked occasionally. If the idler pulleys in the back get knocked out of position, this can change the tension, but it is very simple to gently move them back into position to restore the correct tension. The Operations Guide (found in the Manuals / Download section) describes this procedure.
