After placing your order, a 3D Systems™ representative will contact you to confirm your shipment delivery date. Ensure that the area where you intend to place your Figure 4 Standalone Printer is ready to move the system into, and that you have the assistance of another person or lifting device, such as a hand truck, before scheduling the shipment of your printer. The following information will guide you through this preparation phase.
Preparation for Receiving
Inform your receiving personnel that the items you ordered will be arriving and arrange for a location to store them until you are ready to install the printer and any accessories.
Transporting the Figure 4 Standalone Printer
When you open the printer crate, use the help of another person or a hand truck to help move the system. If you do not have a hand truck or another person on-site to help you, arrange to have one or both of these aids beforehand.
The Figure 4 Standalone Printer will arrive in a variety of crates and/or pallets - the largest crate being for the Figure 4 Standalone Printer. Your shipment will consist of the following items:
- Figure 4 Standalone Printer
- Start-up Kit
- Resin Tray
- Print Platform (x2)
- Power Cord/Power Brick
- LC-3DPrint Box - the recommended post-curing oven for the printer's resins
Optional items you could have in your shipment:
- LC-3DMixer - to agitate bottles of resin to keep their contents mixed properly. Please see the SDS/Instructions for Use of a specific resin for mixing instructions.
- Ultrasonic Part Cleaner (ordered separately from third party)
Once your shipment arrives, first inspect the crates for any physical damage. Then, after inspection, receive the crates.
