The room housing the printer should be well-ventilated. Reasonable care should be taken to minimize dust and smoke which could contaminate the powder and build area. Avoid temperature fluctuations. Since dust, smoke and temperature fluctuations can affect the performance of the machine and the quality of the parts, a restricted area with positive-pressure, filtered air flow is recommended. Avoid proximity to areas where airborne cooking debris (such as smoke, steam, or grease) may be present.
No special lighting is required for the printer.
The following configuration will connect your printer to your company's network.
NOTE: 3D Connect is an optional service. See this page for more information.
Networking Requirements and Necessary Equipment
The printer includes an Ethernet interface, which can be connected to a Gigabit Ethernet network to offer network access to the printer. Ensure your networking equipment conforms to the following:
- The printer requires one RJ45 Ethernet network connection
- 3D Sprint connection to printer requires an Ethernet connection
- 3D Connect™ requires connection to the internet via a gateway/NAT. All services use port 443 with encrypted connections
The customer is responsible for providing all additional networking equipment: Ethernet cable, routers, switches, extenders, etc.
- The printer can use either DHCP or a static IP address, assigned by your network administrator.
