Form 2 should have hermeticly sealed optics

I spend way to much time cleaning mirrors on this printer.

A sealed chamber for the laser and mirrors would be awesome.
Then just have to clean one easy to get to piece.

I don’t mind cleaning the main mirror.
But the galvo’s and first mirror are a pain.




Agreed & upvote!

I was thinking after the warranty expires of hacking in a fan and a HEPA filter to maintain some gentle airflow (maybe even positive pressure) to try and keep dust from settling on the optics.

Was discussing this last week with my boss.

Actually, you can replace the back panel with a duplicate out of plex or aluminum, and use a vacuum HEPA filter and computer fan attached to that (using a separate power supply), and this should have zero effect on warranty. No need to alter any of the original equipment. I’ve been considering the same thing. I build my own computers, and have since the 80’s. My current case[1] is a positive pressure case by Silverstone (literally the best PC case manufacturer in the World). It rotates the mobo 90 degrees and exhausts up. Highly recommended.


Noctua makes some excellent fans.
