Like any machine used in manufacturing there can be potential risks associated with 3D printers. Different levels of risk are associated with different 3D printer market segments. For example, machines used in the production or professional market, such as an aerospace, medical manufacturing, or consumer product company, typically are fully enclosed and have a series of interlocks and control systems to minimize the risk of injury to users. This is important because the size of the machine and the level of energy it can produce can harm the operator or increase the risk of fire.
