MJF Printers build a 3D job on a Build Unit storing build metadata information and a low-resolution
image to be able to show the build information when the Build Unit is moved to next device, for
example a Processing Station. However, when inserting the Build Unit into the next device the
information might take some time to be read and be ready to operate.
Additionally, build might be transferred to a Cooling Unit with less storage capabilities, causing to
store very limited information, which might not be enough for some operations.
The job new job orchestration would require having a centralize repository to distribute the job
information when needed by the devices.
This document describes a multi-level information approach to have as early as possible some
minimum information to show about the build, and an aggregation mechanism to incrementally add
the required information, like low resolution image, detailed content, and instruction on how to
proceed from different sources.
