Only one build failure and that was because I failed to do a test print and
check that all jets were clear and printing well.

The next day after doing 4 test prints one after another the same build file
built fine.

Touch wood I have not had any problems with machine failure.

Greetings RP people,

Does anyone have any reliability issues with 3D Systems ThermoJet?

Build failures - what caused it?

Machine breakdown - what caused it?

Thanks in advance,
