Print Platform - Removable platform on which parts are built. Support material adheres the part to the print platform and is removed from the printer once the job is complete.
Part Material - Is a wax based material used to build the parts. Always wear nitrile gloves, lab coat and safety glasses when handling any material.
Top Door - The chamber door must be closed prior to starting or resuming a build job and is locked when a build is in progress.
Log - A log file is a zip file of logs used by service for resolving potential problems that may occur with the 3D printer system.
Head Maintenance Station (HMS) - The head maintenance station cleans the printhead by allowing it to purge into the waste bin as well as wipe the printhead clean from any remaining material.
Job Scale Percentage (Job Scale %) - This is used to re-size parts during the build process.
Material Delivery Module (MDM) - Stores and feeds the materials to the printer during the build process. The MDM holds two support cartridges and two part cartridges.
Post Processing (Finishing) - Is the final process to remove support material from parts and clean the parts to a smooth finish prior to surface finishing and coating.
Print Engine - The Print Engine contains major systems such as the Printhead, and Planarizer.
Print Process - Three dimensional solid parts printed by the printer consist of two materials (support material and part material). The support material is a wax based material providing adhesion to the print platform, as well as, providing material used to produce supports required to build the model. The part material used to build the parts is a wax based material. When the build is complete the part (consisting of the two materials) is adhered to the print platform by means of the support material.
Build Chamber -The area designated for the part to be built in.
Shrink Comparison Percentage (Shrink Comp %) - Used to adjust for expected shrinkage during the build so actual part dimensions more closely match actual dimensions.
Support Material - Wax based material that provides adhesion to the build platform and support for down facing surfaces and open volumes within the parts.
User Interface (UI) - User Interface is built into the top of the printer. Various features can be controlled and checked by the UI, such as the status of a print job, materials in the printer, shutdown the printer and well as checking on certain settings within the printer.
Waste Bag - Plastic bag designated to catch the waste material from the building process. The waste bag is located in the MDM behind the Support Material. Always wear nitrile gloves, lab coat, and safety glasses when handling any uncured part or waste material.
Waste Material - Any uncured support and/or part material generated during a build process. Always wear nitrile gloves, lab coat, and safety glasses when handling any waste material.
X-Axis - The orientation of the part from left to right on the build platform.
Y-Axis - The orientation of the part from front to back on the build platform.
Z-Axis - The orientation of the part height on the build platform.
.stl File - The files created using a three-dimensional solid Computer-aided design (CAD) software. These files are used to produce parts.
.3dprint File - Files that have been created and saved by the client software 3D SPRINT.
3D SPRINT - The client software used to create parts and send them to the printer.
