The following are environmental issues concerning the Figure 4 Modular:
To allow optimum systems operation and optimum part quality, the temperature of the Figure 4 Modular system’s location should remain stable. The working range is 18-28°C (64-82°F)*. Any temperature fluctuation greater than 3°C may adversely affect parts built on the system. The air conditioning system should maintain a temperature change of less than 1°C per hour. 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 Figure 4 Modular system to direct air flow from the air conditioning system.
*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.
There are no special requirements for controlling waste heat on the Figure 4 Modular.
Humidity and Altitude
The optimal humidity in the Figure 4 Modular build chamber and lab will depend to a certain degree on the resin selection. Regardless, the humidity should always be non-condensing and should not vary outside the range of 20% to 80% RH*. Review your material information (SDS, Instructions for Use, and product labeling) for specific information on recommended humidity levels.
*For Figure 4 FLEX BLK 10 resin, humidity outside the range of 10-65% RH can cause printed-part properties to change.
The Figure 4 Modular system is capable of operating correctly up to an altitude of 2,400 m (7,874 ft) above mean sea level.
Overall sound pressure level for this equipment will not exceed 85 dBA, and, therefore, does not require ear protection to operate.
Disposal of Figure 4 Resin and Waste
When you dispose of materials, refer to the SDS for that material and follow any applicable government regulations. All waste products (resin-soaked paper towels, cleaning liquids, etc.) must be disposed of in accordance with all applicable government regulations.
Do not clean anything with uncured resin on it in a sink or tub that drains into normal wastewater.
