Just happened to me when our bulk tank ran out over the weekend. It
Build stops when O2 level gets too high. Note: Will always happen in
last half inch of very tall build.

What happens to an SLS build (in a DTM 2500+ if that matters) if you
run out
of Nitrogen.
If the flow / pressure drops to zero. . .should the machine stop?
Or will it keep running until the Oxygen sensor indicates that the
chamber's level of O2 has raised too high?
Thanks in advance for any input.
