How stable does the surface on which my Form 1 rests, really need to be?
I have three concerns:
- At the moment, I don’t have a proper table with space in my lab, so I’ve got it set up on a temporary folding table from Costco. It’s not exactly the most sturdy thing ever. It moves noticeably if I brush up against it, or am working with anything on top of it. How much are these macro-scale vibrations (i.e. visible swaying side-to-side, at small magnitudes) likely to affect my print?
- I’m a fan of loud music. My lab is next to my living room, which has some unreasonably powerful subwoofers; and I even have a small sub *in* the lab, when I’m working for long periods and want to listen while I do. (My computer desk is in the lab.) Are these micro-vibrations a problem for the laser’s galvanometers? Should I be shutting the bump off for the fifteen hours of my print?
- Finally, I have a CNC router coming in (another Kickstarter, the Othermill. Looks like a friendly little device.), which, clearly, is also going to generate a lot of vibrations. At the moment, with the limited space left in my lab, I was planning to co-host these two on a single “forming” desk, once I get rid of this folding table. Am I likely to be able to run the router, which I expect to generate some level of vibrations, simultaneously with a printing job?
