Part 1

Floor/Area Surface

Floors and counter spaces in the 3D Culinary Printer work area should be non-porous and suitable for regular cleaning. The printer should not straddle any floor seams, to ensure that the whole printer is on the same, leveled section of floor. The maximum permissible floor incline is 0.25 in/ft (2.1 cm/m).

Floor Vibration and Shock

For optimal part quality and accuracy, it is recommended to select a ground floor location with minimal vibrations. The printer should not be affected by normal or incidental environmental vibration; however, the area should be isolated from any significant internal or external vibration sources such as heavy machinery, airplanes, or trains, which could cause unacceptable shock or vibration levels.

Floor Capacity

The Printer weighs 590 lbs. (267.6 kg). Refer to the Weights and Measurements Chart to determine the total weight of the equipment to be housed in your kitchen to ensure that you do not exceed the maximum load-bearing capacity that your flooring can support.

Electrical Requirements

Electrical voltage requirements for the Printer:

120V~, 60Hz, 2.5A, single phase - does NOT need a dedicated circuit. There is a 120V power cord attached to the printer. If printer is connected to a circuit protected by fuses, use time-delay fuse marked D.

The printer and Brill 3D Culinary Finishing Station cannot be on the same circuit.

Circuit must be protected by an overcurrent protection UL 489 listed-certified as “branch type”. Brill Inc. does not require the use of a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) for the printer. However, if you live in an area with frequent power surges/outages, a surge-protector/UPS would prevent a build from failing in the event of a brief power outage/surge. If using a UPS, we recommend one that is double-conversion that meets or exceeds the power rating displayed on the product label. External circuits must conform to the double-insulation requirements for protection against electric shock in both normal- and single-fault conditions.

Ensure that the space you select for the printer has a power outlet reachable by the length of the power cord attached to the printer (7.5 ft., 2.3 m). Use of an extension cord or power strip is not recommended.

Heat Dissipation

The printer is not expected to give off significant heat under normal operating conditions.
