Currently, safety during the handling of powder and printed jobs is a critical step for 3D printing
systems and workflows.
Below is explained how the system is used to avoid the misuse of the cooling frame when a printed
job is inside to prevent the loss of powder or damage of the printed parts.
The new system would automatically detect and lock the guillotine, which acts as base of the
cooling frame, when a partial or full printed job was inside the it.
