The waste container is a long, vertical box placed at the back of the workspace. It is equipped with two kinds of nozzle cleaning brushes: PTFE brush and two silicone brushes. These brushes clean the nozzles and prevent the waste material from accumulating on the surface of the print. Therefore, if you notice that the hotends and nozzles have become considerably dirty or if the two materials blend on the surface of the print and there are a lot of fragments of the waste material on the tray around the print, the waste container brushes need to be replaced.
