Part 2

Connection to AC Power

  • In the United States, the printer may plug into a standard 15-amp wall outlet. Both the Printer and Controller connect to a 120V~ power outlet through a NRTL (example: UL) approved power cord.

  • In Europe, the printer may plug into a standard 20-amp wall outlet. Both the Printer and Controller connect to a 230/240V~ power outlet through an approved power cord that is adequately rated for the destination country. Country destination kits are available with the proper wall-power connections.

Temperature

The temperature in the room or location where the Figure 4 system resides should remain stable to allow optimal system operation and optimal part quality.

Figure 4 resins should be stored between 5°C-30°C (41°F-86°F). However, successful printing has only been tested at a minimum of 18°C (64.4°F) and a maximum of 28°C (82.4°F)*. If your room is kept beyond either extreme, you may see a degradation in print quality.

*For Figure 4 FLEX BLK 10 resin, printing temperatures outside the range of 10-30°C (50-86°F) can cause printed-part properties to change.

Humidity

The optimal humidity in the Printer build chamber and lab will depend to a certain degree on the Figure 4 material selection. Regardless, the humidity should always be non-condensing and should not vary outside the range of 20% to 80% RH*. Review your Figure 4 material information (SDS, Instructions for Use) for specific information on recommended humidity levels.

*For Figure 4 FLEX BLK 10 resin, humidity outside the range of 10-65% can cause printed-part properties to change.

Altitude

The Figure 4 system is capable of operating correctly up to an altitude of 2,400 m (1.5 mi.) above mean sea level.

Overall Sound Pressure Level (OASPL)

The sound of the Figure 4 system will not exceed 85 db and, therefore, does not require ear protection to operate.
