Heat Dissipation

The NextDent 5100 Printer is not expected give off significant heat under normal operating conditions.

Connection to AC Power

  • In the United States, connection to a standard 10-amp wall outlet is required. The system connects to a 120VAC power outlet through a standard 120VAC power cord.
  • In Europe, a standard 10-amp wall outlet is also required. The system connects to a 230VAC power outlet through a standard 230VAC power cord. Country destination kits are available with the proper wall-power connections.

Temperature

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

NextDent resins should be kept 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.

Humidity

The optimal humidity in the NextDent 5100 Printer build chamber and lab will depend to a certain degree on the NextDent material selection. Regardless, the humidity should always be non-condensing and should not vary outside the range of 20 to 80% RH. Review your NextDent material information (SDS, Instructions for Use, and product labeling) for specific information on recommended humidity levels.

Altitude

The NextDent system is capable of operating correctly up to an altitude of 2,400 m above mean sea level.

Ventilation

While outside venting is not always required, there are some materials for which outside venting is necessary. Your HVAC system should perform at least six air exchanges per hour in the room where the printer is located. You may wish to have a fume hood installed for your part-cleaning area. Ensure that your facility complies with all local and regional regulations regarding ventilation of vapors, dust, and other by-products of printing, cleaning and secondary processing.  Always refer to and follow the information on the SDS for your specific material.
