    Just purchase FB500 around 3month ago. Now heat rise in the warehouse and machine cannot print. Our lease here only 2 years and run out working space, we are move out when term is end next March.

    We purchased Port a Cool (water cooler) to help keep temperature cooler for employees and the machine can print instead we only print early morning or late night.

    My questions are the humidity will make machine problem?

    I have a lot of issues with my paper-backed Hartco materials (sandblast mask) when the humidity outdoors gets too high. The paper backing absorbs moisture and tends to curl. I would suspect you'll have similar issues. JB

    Humidity can also greatly affect color profiles and how things print....

    We use one to add humidity to the room from time to time. Its funny usually the humidity outside is over 80% but the A/C
    really dries the air. I have two fb950's
    and could not imagine running them in an environment that doesn't have good climate control.

    As long as you keep humidity levels in check I don't see a problem. We maintain between 55 and 65 percent humidity.

    Port-A-Cool worth every penny

    We are plan to put this unit to other place not in the shop for winter (need for FB500 cool down able to print in summer).

    Any way we are printing AMA (American Music Award) back drop Celtic fabric on LX850 and a lot of fume (smoke) around the shop. We are turn unit 180 degrees to help pull the fume out of the shop in couple minute.

    Love this unit. We are going to get 2nd one for summer 2014 proper smaller for other room, we don't have AC.
