    Safety The following classifications are used throughout this guide. CAUTION: Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury. WARNING: Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in serious injury. Hot Surface: The hot surface sign indicates the presence of devices with high temperatures.

    Single Board Computer The single board computer (SBC) is the main processor in the system. See (Figure ) showing the board layout. The TCP/IP network interface connects directly to the RJ-45 connector on the SBC. The network interface supports both 10baseT and 100baseT operation. The hardware differentiates automatically.

  • Page 25: Liquefier Temperature Control

    Liquefier Temperature Control The liquefier T/C connects to the controller board through the power distribution board. The T/C generates a variable low level current that depends on the temperature of the T/C. This analog signal from the T/C is amplified by the head distribution. It is then sent down the umbilical cable to the PDB, and then to the controller board.

    in turn is controlled by the controller board. The following is a list of actuators: • Door solenoid – locks the door to the modeling chamber. • Carrier latches – holds carriers in the material bays. • Material bay solenoids – engage the motor that feeds filament from carrier to the liquefier during auto load.

    Orientation can also affect the ability of HP Designjet 3D Software Solution to repair any problems with the STL file. You can choose to auto orient your part, which allows HP Designjet 3D Software Solution to determine the best orientation for the part for the fastest build time and least material usage, or you can manually change the orientation of your part.

  • Page 62: Removing A Completed Part

    Removing support material HP Designjet 3D and HP Designjet Color 3D use soluble support material which is designed to dissolve in a soap and water based solution. Your part is left with a smooth and clean finish with the fine details intact. The soluble support material can be removed by hand with relative ease, but is designed to be dissolved from your parts for hands free finishing.

    Actual Travel Limits: This is the distance between the BOT (Begin Of Travel) and EOT (End Of Travel) Sensors in inches. Set origin to: This gives an offset to the BOT sensors so the machine is not moving into the sensors during a build. 3.

  • Page 455

    7. le = load exception log This command prints the contents of the exception log located in non-volatile memory. This exception log contains a record of the most recent exceptions that occurred within the controller. The exceptions are printed in chronological order.

  • Page 456

    8. tm = monitors temperatures This command displays temperature information for the model Liquefier, support liquefier, and chamber heater. Use this command if you experience temperature problems with the head. Check if the model and support temperature reach the set point and if the temperature is stable once it reaches the set point temperature.

  • Page 457

    The MZ command moves the Z-Stage relative to the current position. A positive value moves the Z-Stage down. A negative value moves the Z-Stage Example: mz 4.0 This command will move the Z-Stage 4 inch down. 10. mx = move x This command moves the head in the X axis.
