Cleaning Printed Parts

The following equipment is needed to clean parts produced on the NextDent 5100 Printer:

  1. Stainless steel or glass containers that are big enough to contain the printed parts you wish to make
  2. >90% alcohol solvent
  3. Ultrasonic cleaner, which agitates solvents like >90% alcohol solvent using ultrasonic sound waves. Sonication is the required cleaning method for your printed parts to achieve medical certification. Your ultrasonic cleaner should have:
    1. Digital Timer
    2. Volume great enough to hold your steel or glass containers
    3. Explosion-proof features

WARNING: >90% alcohol solvent is FLAMMABLE AS BOTH LIQUID AND VAPOR. KEEP AWAY FROM HEAT, SPARK AND OPEN FLAMES. USE WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION. STORE AT 20-30ºC (68-86°F).

always wear gloves when cleaning build parts.
