Disclosure to explain a new system that automatically raise the build unit platform during the uncake
operation in a powder Processing Station.
The current system requires the operator to push an up or down button to move the platform during the
uncake when the recycled powder is being vacuum. When the operator pushes the up button, the
platform is being raised to the top position in order to continue the process.
With the system proposed here, during an unpack operation, a laser sensor reads the distance, so it can
calculate when the powder has been removed and the platform could be raised up automatically, reducing
the operation time and increasing the system quality as there has been a few issues with the button
