Packaging Inspection

The VisiJet® material cartridge are packaged in shipping cartons. Upon receipt of material shipments, inspect cardboard carton exterior for signs of damage and leakage. If leakage is observed, DO NOT open carton, and contact 3D Systems’ Technical Support Hotline. If no leakage is observed, keep the material cartridge in their cartons and store until material is used.

 

Part Building

If uncured material is observed on the part or platform after build, this is an abnormal condition, and is an indication the printer requires servicing by 3D Systems or a certified servicing reseller. Assume any liquid or paste-like material is part material. Do not directly touch uncured part material without protective gloves. Discontinue use of the printer pending service by a 3D Systems Technical Support Representative. 

Flammability and Combustibility

Do not expose materials to heat at or above 230°F (110°C), flames, sparks, or any source of ignition. (Though the U.S. Department of Transportation does not consider VisiJet materials a “flammability hazard,” they do classify them “combustible” based on flash points.) For more information on VisiJet material flash points and combustibility, see VisiJet® Material Handling and Post Processing Guide. 

 

Personal Protection Equipment

  •  Exposure to uncured part material may occur when removing and disposing of the waste pan. To prevent contact, wear chemically resistant protective gloves - nitrile or neoprene gloves are recommended.   Do not use Latex gloves.
  • In the event of a leak or spill of uncured part material, wear safety glasses with side shields to provide eye protection  
  • Because of the printer’s built in engineering controls, respiratory protection is not necessary during normal operation. A NIOSH-approved (or equivalent) dust mask is recommended when dry sanding cured material parts.
