Disclosure to explain a system to be able to automatically detect and quantify powder leaks in a 3D
printing system build Unit. This system would allow the systems to be proactively repaired before the
hardware failed or a there was a shutdown during a job.
This would also represent a cost reduction since less powder would be lost until the user noticed that
powder was leaking. Avoiding powder leaks or minimizing them is also a safety improvement since the
user will not be exposed to the material.
