Physical Steps to Change Print Material

The Figure 4 Standalone can print with many different Figure 4 resins. Please see the section Print Material Bottles for a full list of supported resins. This section describes the steps that are necessary to cease using one resin type in the printer, and to begin using another resin type. You should have already scanned the new resin into the printer's memory in the previous section.

  1. Remove the print platform and resin tray, cleaning them both, as per the sections Clean Print Platform and Clean Resin Tray.

  1. If the catch-tray glass has a large amount of spilled resin on it, you must dispose of it according to all government regulations and replace it with a new catch tray. If it has no resin, or just a few resin spots on it, clean the glass with IPA on a nonabrasive cloth, according to the section Clean/Replace the Catch Tray.
