Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to monitor the W7500 during the printing process?

No, the W7500 is fully automatic and will shut down after six hours or when Disposable Tube is fully printed, whichever comes first. In the event of a facility power failure, the machine will automatically shut down. 

What can I do with the printed plastic created by the W7500?

The zero-cost plastic is ideal for CNC mills and lathes to generate machined prototypes, jigs and fixtures, or simply to prove a new program which saves potential waste of expensive end-use materials. All printed plastic from the W7500 is safe for disposal as standard household waste. 

Is the W7500 a hazardous waste processing machine?

The W7500 is a 3D printer, and not a waste processing machine. It functions in the same way as other 3D printing technologies such as PolyJet, Stereolithography, or DLP, using the same UV light cured resins. Like all 3D printers, the W7500 does not require a TDSF (Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities) permit from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). The product it prints is a solid plastic stock material. This material can be used for a wide variety of uses, including low-cost media for CNC machining prototypes, jigs, and fixtures. As the W7500 is a 3D printer, the parts printed are safe to dispose of as standard household waste.

Why does the solid plastic stock feel sticky sometimes?

If your waste contains any PolyJet support material, you may notice that your cured solid plastic stock has a tacky film on its surface. This is caused by mineral oils contained in the support material. Simply spray with a household cleaner and wipe off.

Can the W7500 be used in an office environment?

The printer comes with built-in carbon filtration; however, it is intended to be used in a well-ventilated warehouse or factory environment. To connect the W7500 to facility exhaust, please contact Onulis for more information regarding an exhaust adaptor.

What resins are compatible with the W7500?

The W7500 is compatible with PolyJet, SLA, and DLP waste resins. The Vat – Standard is currently released for use with PolyJet. Contact Onulis for information regarding Stereolithography and DLP Vats.

Can I mix various PolyJet resins in the Vat?

Yes. All combinations of model or support resins which are caught in the waste reservoir of your PolyJet printer can be placed in the W7500 and full curing will be achieved. The W7500 is also ideal for printing expired resins.

Do I need to filter my resin prior to loading my W7500?

No, the W7500 is fully automatic and will shut down after six hours or when Disposable Tube is fully printed, whichever comes first. In the event of a facility power failure, the machine will automatically shut down.
