Troubleshooting: When to Replace the Motherboard of an FDM Printer
Knowing the motherboard of an FDM printer is very useful in maintaining printer performance and ensuring high quality printing. The motherboard is the core of the 3D printer, interpreting the G-code, converting it into physical movement during the printing process, ensuring the movement and accuracy of components such as the extruder and the build platform, regulating temperatures, print speeds, print accuracy, controlling the deposition of material, and more.
There are many possible signs of a motherboard failure, such as hardware issues like motors that won't move, print quality issues that still occur after maintenance and troubleshooting, and electronic issues like short circuits or intermittent faults. We also recommend contacting the printer's technical team to determine the problem with the machine, and to determine if the root cause is a faulty motherboard, and then decide whether the motherboard needs to be replaced.
