I have a Formlabs Form 2 which I’ve run for years. Never had any eye discomfort while operating it or staring for a long time at prints in progress.
The Moai makes my eyes hurt when printing. I have followed the assembly instructions to the letter and it appears to be light tight. I have taken to covering the top of the machine with a dark cotton pillow case while printing. When I do that, my eyes don’t hurt during printing. But then I can’t see what’s going on in there.
Anyone else have this problem? Is the front door acrylic of the machine laser safe? How could I verify this? Is there a material or device that could reveal the presence of stray laser light emanating from the machine? Should there be a felt strip around the edges of the door as on the Form 2, to ensure a light tight seal?
Thanks in advance.
