CLEANING CAKEWALK 3D
Assembling Cakewalk 3d before pouring the preparation
1. Screw on the nozzle
Take the nozzle (5) and the cone (2) and screw them together.
2. Assemble the lower nut
Put this assembly in the lower nut D (7), then screw the lower nut to the tube (13).
3. Assemble the upper parts
Insert the flanged bearing (4) into the drilled disc (3), then place everything in the upper nut U (8) with the smaller diameter of the flanged bearing facing out.
4. Insert the worm and close the tube
Insert the worm (12) into the tube (13), then screw in the top nut assembly.
Assembling the supporting parts of Cakewalk 3d
1. 3D print the parts
Download the parts files available in 3D files, then 3D print them using your 3D printer
2. Screw the rings to the main support part
Screws (10) and nuts (9) are provided in Standard kit and above.
3. Assemble the Nema motor
Screw the motor (1) to the main part using the four screws (10) provided.
4. Connect the coupler
Push the coupler (6) 10 mm onto the motor shaft and then secure the assembly.
5. Install the support on your 3d printer
Installing Cakewalk 3d on the 3d printer
1. Connect the tube with the coupler
Connect the exiting part of the tube (upper part of the worm) with the coupler then tighten the screws to secure everything together.
2. Check the connection
Drop the tube onto the top ring.
3. Secure the tube
Close the rings, place the nuts in the shoulders provided for this purpose, then screw them in order to hold the tube.
Cakewalk 3d is now ready to 3d print.
4. Check the noozle level on the 3d printer bed
Cakewalk 3d has a certain height and it is often necessary to shift the origin in Z in order to avoid contact between the plate and the nozzle. The silicone mat also adds thickness to your standard settings.
Perform progressive Z-movements and evaluate the minimum Z-height at different locations on the bed (as in an initialization procedure).
Also check that the nozzle does not hit the tray during the initialization phase.
There are two possible solutions after these steps:
- If the nozzle rubs the plate during the homing phase, you need to move your limit switch on the Z axis in order to define a new origin.
- If the initialization phase goes smoothly, you can simply add the value in the Z / Z offset field of your 3d slicer.
5. Send the G-code and unleash your creativity!
All you have to do is create some nice sliceable designs, then send the gcode to your printer.
You can find the specific parameters in the Recipes section

Cleaning Cakewalk 3d
1. Remove Cakewalk 3D from its support
Detach the coupler from the worm gear, unscrew the rings, then remove Cakewalk 3D from its holder.
2. Disassemble Cakewalk 3D
Unscrew the two nuts and dismantle the part.
3. Separate the pieces
You can put all the parts in the dishwasher!
4. Check the cleaning of the nozzle
You may check that the nozzle is perfectly unblocked with conventional needles for 3D printers.
