Running a Resin-Tray Cleaning

Any time you experience a failed build, there will more than likely be partially cured resin either floating in the resin tray or stuck to the resin-tray film. Because of this, you must perform a Resin Tray Cleaning after a failed build, even if floating debris in the tray is not obvious. The following steps describe the process.

  1. Remove the print platform from the machine. This print does not need to adhere to the print platform and might be difficult to remove from the platform.
  1. On the printer, tap the settings-cog.jpg button to open the Settings screen. Tap the Resin Tray Cleaning Tool icon.

  1. If you have not done so, remove the print platform. Ensure printer lid and front door are closed and tap Start.

  1. The cleaning print will now begin. This build cannot be aborted, even if you open the lid and front door. It must complete once it is started. You will note there is a progress bar on the screen and a Remaining Time indicator. Once the build is finished, the printer screen will change. Tap Next Job to prepare the printer for the next build.

  1. Wait at least one minute after job completion. Use the Resin Mixer to get under the printed sheet and remove it from the tray. Clean and cure the printed sheet so that you can discard it with regular trash.
