There are three primary types of messages which could appear on the touchscreen of your 3D printer system. The primary types of messages found will be Build, Material, and Status and Message Lines.
Use these messages to help you manage print jobs before, during, and after printing. The causes of and actions to take in response to various messages are described in the following table:
The 3D printer system is currently building.
|NOT BUILDING||The 3D printer is ready to build||Press Start to build|
|ProJet [X.X] month dd yyyy
|When 3D printer system is initially powered-up the latest version of firmware is briefly displayed.||NONE|
Use the following messages to help manage print jobs before, during, and after building. The causes and actions to take to various messages are described below:
The current number of modeling material bottle in the right material delivery system.
|#X SUPPORT||The current number of support material bottle in the left material delivery systems||NONE|
|ADD PART||The maximum number of model material bottles in the right material delivery system is four (4) bottles.||Add model material bottles|
|ADD SUPPORT||The maximum number of support material bottles in the left material delivery system is four (4).||Add support material bottles|
Status and Messages Lines
Messages appear either on the Status line or the Message line. Read both lines together to determine the exact state of the 3D printer system. The Status line generally indicates current state of the 3D printer system. The Message line shows the action to take to complete a function and move to the next step.
ABORT button pressed.
|Press YES or NO to cancel the command.|
|You confirmed an abort command. The 3D printer system is aborting the current job.||NONE|
PAUSE button pressed during the build. The print platform moves forward and the chamber door and waste drawer remain locked.
When you press the PAUSE button during a build, the 3D printer system completes its current task before stopping.
|Press PAUSE to continue.|
|The 3D printer system is cleaning the build jets.||NONE. (This occurs automatically before every build.)|
|CLOSE DOORS||The chamber door is open.||Close the chamber door.|
|CONFIRM PLATFORM CLEAR OR CANCEL||The 3D printer system is prompting you to verify the platform is clean and clear of obstructions.||Verify the platform is clean and clear, then press YES to continue / press ABORT to cancel.|
|PRESS PAUSE TO CONTINUE||The 3D printer system is paused.||Press PAUSE to continue / ABORT to cancel|
|CYCLE POWER TO CONTINUE||A severe error occurred. The 3D printer system cannot recover from it and must be switched off.||Cycle power to the 3D printer system. If the error message occurs again, contact your Certified 3D Systems Service Provider|
|DONE REMOVE BUILD||The 3D printer system completed building the current job.||Remove the platform|
|HOMING PRINTHEAD||The 3D printer system is initializing the Z-axis prior to building. NONE
|HOMING X - Y||The 3D printer system is initializing the X-axis and Y-axis prior to building.||NONE|
|INSTALL PLATFORM||The 3D printer system does not detect a platform.||Install a clean platform.|
|NOT BUILDING||The 3D printer system is ready to build.||Press Start to build.|
|OK TO POWER OFF||The 3D printer system completed its internal shutdown procedure and is ready to be shutdown.||
Toggle power switch on 3D printer system rear panel to the OFF position.
|ONLINE/MENU?||The 3D printer system is ready to build.||Press Start to build.|
|PAUSE ACKNOWLEDGE||The PAUSE button was pressed. The 3D printer system is acknowledging and complying with the command.||
|PLEASE WAIT||The 3D printer system is cooling to shutdown temperature||Wait for the 3D printer system to complete its shutdown procedures.|
|PRE-JOB CHECKS||Briefly displayed during 3D printer system build preparation.||NONE|
|BUILDING||The 3D printer system is currently building.||Allow the print job to continue or press PAUSE or ABORT to stop building.|
|The 3D printer system is raising the printhead so you can remove the platform.||NONE|
|REMOVE BUILD||The 3D printer system completed a print job and unlocked the chamber door so you can remove the platform||Remove the platform and replace it with a clean platform.|
|SHUTDOWN IN PROGRESS||You selected the SHUTDOWN menu option, then pressed YES twice. The 3D printer system is cooling down so power can be switched off.||
|SHUTDOWN COMPLETE||3D printer system cool down is complete; 3D printer system is ready for power off.||
Wait for OK TO POWER OFF message, then switch power off at the 3D printer system’s rear panel.
|STANDBY||The 3D printer system is in energy-saver mode. All internal subsystems are partially cooled and the 3D printer system is inactive.||NONE. The 3D printer system will warm to operating temperature when you press any button or submit a print job.|
|WAITING FOR JOB||The 3D printer system is online, but there is no print job in it’s queue. The 3D printer system is ready to build as soon as it receives a job.||Submit a print job to the 3D printer system.|
|WARMING STAGE [4,3,2,1]||The material heaters and printhead jet heaters gradually warm up to either standby or build temperature.||NONE. The numbers on the touchscreen count down as the 3D printer system warms up. At Warming Stage 1, all heaters and material are at build temperature.|
