Remove/Replace Catch Tray

Remove the Catch Tray

You will have to empty the catch tray whenever there is a material spill into it.

NOTE: Be sure that you remove the print tray and glass print base prior to performing this procedure.

 

  1. Have a washing tub and recommended solvent on-hand. The tub should be big enough to submerge the whole catch tray if need be.

CAUTION: Do not empty or wash the catch tray in a sink or other tub that drains into wastewater. The uncured print material inside must be disposed of according to all local, state, and federal regulations.

 
  1. Wearing nitrile gloves, grab the back of the catch tray with one hand, and the front with the other. Lift the tray up (1) and then pull it slightly toward the front of the printer, until it rests on the chassis (2).

ALWAYS WEAR 100% nITRILE GLOVES WHEN HANDLING THE CATCH TRAY, EVEN IF IT APPEARS THERE IS NO Material ON THE OUTSIDE OF IT.

CAUTION: Always hold the catch tray upright to avoid spilling the material inside.

  1. Slowly pull the tray out. Holding the tray with one hand, hold a lint-free paper towel underneath with the other to catch any potential spilled material.

  1. Dispose of the print material in the tray according to all local, state, and federal regulations.

    CAUTION: Do NOT reuse the material in catch tray. Doing so risks contaminating the material in the print tray, which will lead to failed builds.

 
  1. Wearing nitrile gloves, hold the catch tray in the tub you prepared and wash it with recommended solvent and a nonabrasive cloth, such as microfiber. Dispose of solvent/material mix according to all local, state, and federal regulations.
 
  1. Thoroughly dry the catch tray with shop air or other method.
