1 AON-M2 Site Requirements
Before unpacking and preparing to install the AON-M2, read through all of the following machine specifications to ensure that the location meets the physical requirements.
The AON-M2 fits through most standard doorways however, adequate space is still necessary to allow for easy maintenance and to change filaments. The machine dimensions and recommended footprint are as follows:
|Width||94.5cm||200cm (50cm clearance)|
|Depth||80.6cm||200cm (50cm clearance)|
|Height||144cm||300cm (150cm clearance)|
The AON-M2 runs optimally on 240VAC power but will also operate down to 208VAC with slightly reduced heating performance.
1.2.1 Recommended Electrical Specifications
1.2.2 Allowable Electrical Specifications
1.2.3 Power Consumption
|Peak Theoretical Power||4150W|
Please note that the customer is responsible for ensuring that all necessary electrical work is carried out by qualified personnel.
Interfacing with the AON-M2 is done using either the touchscreen interface or via a web browser on your local area network (LAN). However, all files must be uploaded via a browser. A network connection is required for use. Please note however, that the network can be airgapped from the wide area network, and traffic to AON3D servers is not a requirement for use.
The AON-M2 can connect to your LAN via WiFi or RJ45 Ethernet. Internet access will be required to access certain features, software updates, and for technical support.
If for policy or other reasons you are not able to connect the M2 to a network with internet access, you will need to contact us to make separate arrangements to allow for regular updates of the software and the ability for us to provide technical support.
AON3D and the AON-M2 do not support legacy browsers!
The web client utilizes modern browser functionality such as WebSockets and WebGL, so using an up-to-date browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Safari is required.
AON3D only officially supports the use of Simplify3D to slice 3D model files. You are free to use any slicing software you wish to use, however we cannot guarantee print quality, and will be unable to assist in ensuring your success.
1.5 Safety & Environment
All materials officially supported by AON3D do not pose a health or safety hazard when used under standard operating conditions. However, certain individuals with increased sensitivity may find that the use of certain materials emit odours they find unpleasant. AON3D recommends that the M2 be operated in a room with adequate ventilation. A rough guideline is 4 ACH (air changes per hour) or more.
1.5.2 Ambient Operating temperatures
The ambient temperatures around the AON-M2 should be between 15°C and 25°C.
1.5.3 Ambient Humidity
The relative humidity should be 30-70%, non-condensing.
1.5.4 Other Environmental Considerations
The AON-M2 should not be operated in an area with potential for EMI such as near high-powered radio devices, industrial motors, etc.
AON3D is not responsible for ensuring that you meet any other local, regional, state, or national regulations that may apply specifically to your situation.
1.6 Required Tools & Materials
The setup and installation process will require the following basic tools and materials:
- 3mm hex driver
- 4mm hex driver
- 2L, deionized water
- Fluid container with spout
- Large flathead driver
- Vernier calipers
Ensure you use deionized water rather than distilled water. The reason for using deionized water is to avoid corrosion of metal components in the cooling circuit!
