After the completion of this process the laser cutter was working better than it had in months and I was very glad that I did it. This is not something that anyone would need to do every day, but is definitely something to keep in mind as your machine clocks hundreds of hours.
All you need to do this is some distilled water, mild dish detergents, q-tips, rags, sponges and a phillips screw driver.
Step 1: Unplug the Laser Cutter
Step 2: Remove the side panels
Step 3: Clean the y-axis belts
Pour some distilled water in a cup and put in a drop of mild dish detergent. Environment-friendly brands tend to work well.
The y-axis belts should be relatively clean and you should be able to get away with wiping them off with a rag dampened in the soapy water.
