The Machina X-Series 3D Printer is a precision tool that, when used properly, will help you bring your ideas to life. Like any professional equipment, you should treat the printer, materials, and accessories with respect and care to ensure a safe working environment and a long lasting machine.

The printer has built in safeguards to protect it from overheating, however the normal operating temperatures and the upper temperature safeguards are over 200 degrees Celsius, which is very dangerous for a human being. If this system is tampered with, or fails, there is risk for the hot end reaching very high temperatures and severe burning may occur if touched.
