Unpacking the Printer

CAUTION: Printer weighs 37.5kg (82.7 lbs). Please be careful, and use proper lifting techniques, as well as the help of another person, to avoid injury.

CAUTION: Do not install the printer near direct sunlight or other strong UV source. If the print material is exposed to direct sunlight, the material will begin to cure. Standard fluorescent lamps with clear plastic diffusers are recommended to minimize ultraviolet exposure. Sunlight, quartz-halogen lamps, and high-intensity incandescent lamps are not suitable. UV filters are available for windows and exposed fluorescent lamps.

CAUTION: Install the printer on a sturdy, level surface. Do not install it in a place where it will straddle table/counter/desk seams. If at all possible, install in a ground-floor room with a concrete base. Do not install over or near carpeted areas or other porous surfaces such as hardwood. These precautions exist to maintain the integrity of your 3D-printed builds and for safety in the event of a material spill.
