1. A handling device for an apparatus for the additive manufacture of three-dimensional objects, which handling device is equipped to handle an additively manufactured three-dimensional object, comprising:
a handling chamber, which comprises a handling chamber interior delimited by one or more handling chamber walls, wherein
at least one handling chamber wall comprises an access opening allowing access into the handling chamber interior, wherein the at least one access opening is openable and closable via a thereto assigned sliding-door-like closure element, which is mounted such that it is slidingly movable in a vertical direction between an open setting, in which the sliding-door-like closure element opens up the at least one access opening, and a closed setting, in which the sliding-door-like closure element closes off the access opening, relative to the handling chamber wall comprising the access opening, and wherein the handling chamber comprises a top side having a recess configured to prevent contacting of at least one functional element arranged on the closure element when the at least one functional element is moved into the handling chamber interior in the closed setting, the recess forming part of the access opening closed by the sliding-door-like closure element in the closed setting.
