Environmental Safety

The following are environmental issues concerning the printer. The temperature and relative humidity (RH) of your facility, in particular, are imperative to achieving the best print quality. See the Printed Part Quality Troubleshooting section for more information.

Temperature

To allow optimum systems operation and optimum part quality, the temperature of the printer's location should remain stable. The working range is 64.4°F - 78.8°F (18°C - 26°C). The printer room should have a minimum cooling capacity of 1.4 kW. We recommend an HVAC system that changes the air six times per hour. To avoid adversely affecting part quality, do not expose the printer to direct air flow from the air conditioning system.

There are no special requirements for controlling waste heat on the printer.

Humidity and Altitude

The optimal humidity in the printer build chamber and kitchen should always be non-condensing and should be between <40% Relative Humidity (RH). Review your ingredient information (SDS, User Guide, and product labeling) for specific information on recommended humidity levels. If operating RH is between 40-50%, the drying time for your parts in the machine should be extended to 60 minutes. The printer is capable of operating correctly up to an altitude of 6,561.7 ft. (2,000 m) above mean sea level.

Sound Pressure

Overall sound pressure level for this equipment will not exceed 85 dBA and, therefore, does not require ear protection to operate.

Disposal of Printer Ingredient and Waste

Expired binder, waste binder, and cleaning products that have come in contact with it (gloves, paper towels, etc.) must be disposed of in accordance with applicable government regulations. Waste powder and discarded/broken builds may be disposed of as normal food waste.
