Change Material Before Printing

If the print job sent over from 3D Sprint uses a different print material than that loaded on the printer, one of two screens will pop up, prompting you to take certain actions:

When you see this screen, it means that the material currently loaded on the printer is not the same material that was sent over in the build file AND that the new material and the old material ARE compatible with the same resin tray, according to the section Resin Tray Material Cross-Usage.You must now:

  1. Either replace the resin tray or clean it as seen in the section Clean Resin Tray. Install the new or cleaned resin tray. Once you have done this, tap Continue.
  2. You will see a screen similar to the one below:
