4. Artillery/Evnovo Sidewinder X1 use & maintenance

These notes are focused on care and maintenance of the Artillery/Evnovo Sidewinder X1 printer. I am using the Artillery Sidewinder X1 v4. Most of these notes apply to earlier versions with minor exceptions.


These notes are based on my experiences with the Prusa i3 Mk3 and Artillery/Evnovo Sidewinder X1 printers. If you are using a different printer, please verify the hardware details are similar.


Lots to do on these pages. I’m just getting started updating the Sidewinder content. Look forward to:

  • Troubleshooting bed adhesion

  • Cleaning the UltraBase glass bed

  • Dialing in printer settings

  • Calibrating Maximum Volumetric Speed (hotend throughput)

Contact and feedback

You can find me on the Prusa support forums or Reddit where I lurk in many of the 3D printing-related subreddits. I occasionally drop into the Official Prusa 3D discord server where I can be reached as bobstro (bobstro#9830). You can email me directly at projects@ttlexceeded.com.
