05.6 Network Interface

The ProJet™ Production Printing System requires an Ethernet network connection to transfer print jobs from workstation(s) to the printer.

Network Specifications, Physical: The machine's internal controller provides an integrated, 10/100-megabit-per-second (Mbps) Ethernet
network connection. This connection supports both the 10base-T and 100base-TX Ethernet standards. The controller's connector (an RJ45
socket located on the back panel) is designed for attaching a shielded twisted pair (UTP) Ethernet cable.

When a facility's internal network is not 10base-T or 100base-TX, a media converter, such as a Coax to 10base-T will be required. Consult with
your organization's network engineering or MIS staff to provide assistance with these requirements.

The printer works on networks running TCP/IP ONLY each printer MUST have a STATIC IP address on the network. Additionally, each printer's
subnet mask and default gateway must be known and available to 3D Systems' 3D Systems Field Service Engineer or authorized reseller at the
time of its installation, and should also be known by personnel installing the client software. They will need access either to the appropriate subnet
mask or the individual IP address of each printer to complete the workstation software installation, and to enable access to any printer on the
network.

Not all networks have the TCP/IP installed. Make sure to have a network administrator check that TCP/IP are both installed
and are running as required PRIOR TO THE ARRIVAL of the printer.

05.7 Material Storage

VisiJet® part and support materials should uie stored in a conveniently located storage cabinet in proximity to the printer itself. A cabinet is
recommended to protect against long term exposure to external UV light sources, including sunlight, overhead lighting, or other UV light sources. 

. VisiJet® part material should be stored away

Storage temperature of the material should not exceed the specified maximum of 35°C (95°F)
from strong oxidizing agents, such as hydrogen peroxide, bromine, or chromic acid.

NOTE: When storing material bottles that have been used but still have materials in
the bottles, do not lay the bottles on their side in storage. Store box with side
spacers installed. *DO NOT rest on nose of bottle.
 Also, in the case where used bottles
with materials are removed from the MDM and are still warm, it must be stored with the
cap vented. If the warm bottle is not vented, the wax will contract during cooling and the
bottle's bottom may become flat which will prevent reengagement in the MDM.*

Locate the ProJet™ Printing System in a convenient location meeting the requirements specified in this document. To ensure optimum
performance, it is important that the printer should be installed in a clean, dry, air-conditioned room. Avoid placing the printer in any environment
with airborne contaminant, including cigarette smoke, fumes, and mechanical particulates that can adversely affect the long term functioning of
this equipment.

Each ProJet™ Production Printing System undergoes an operational test at the factory, and is shipped with a limited,
residual amount of build and support material already in its internal reservoir. When ordering, order enough build and
support materials for each MDMs supplied and for reserves when running production builds. This will ensure adequate
supplies of material are available to avoid build delays.

06.1 Air Conditioning

06.2 Humidity

06.3 Lighting

06.4 Vibration and Shock

06.1 Air Conditioning

A number of the ProJet™ 5000 System's internal electronic components as well as the part material, are sensitive both to ambient temperature
and, to some extent, humidity. In addition, the build process itself can be temperature-sensitive within certain limits. The operating temperature
range should be between 18-28°C (64-82°F); optimally approximately 21-24°C (70-75°F).
The facility air conditioning system where the printer is operating should be capable of dissipating 1.0 kW (3412 Btu or 0.28 ton U.S. refrigeration)
of heat or equivalent to deep temperature requirements. Ensure that any air conditioning ducting does not vent directly onto the machine.

Build Platform:

Ensure that the corner guides on the backside of platform
are clean and free of debris. If debris exists when installing,
the platform guides will not lock into the platform elevator. 
NOTE: Clean platform elevator and platform using a lint
free cloth and Isopropyl alcohol. When cleaning
platform, clean the front and back sides.
Lift build chamber door; place platform with corner guides
and pads facing down onto the platform elevator. Seat onto
elevator. The corner guides will affix the platform to the
elevator and if properly installed, platform will not move. It
should sit squarely on the elevator and be firmly located by
the corner guides. Use caution not to drop the platform or
hit the printhead.
Close build chamber door and press ONLINE.
To remove platform, lift from the sides; pull up and out from
the platform elevator.

The ProJet™ Production Printing System can now be used to produce prints.
