Safety

Once your 3D build has completed, the part on the platform is considered green until it has been through post-processing. A green part must be handled with nitrile gloves at all times. This section describes how to post-process the part, rendering it safe to handle without nitrile gloves. You will need lint-free paper towels (or absorbent cloth) to catch resin that may drip from the part, as well as two stainless-steel or glass containers in which to submerge the part in your solvent of choice.

ALWAYS WEAR 100% NITRILE GLOVES DURING POST-PROCESSING PROCEDURES.

CAUTION: Always follow the precautions noted in the SDS (Safety Data Sheets) for any resin or solvent being used. It is important to limit the exposure of the resin tray to light, as too much exposure will begin to solidify the resin inside it and render it unsuitable for part building. Place a cover over parts when not in use and  close the printer door

 

Safety information for the printer and material handling can be found at the links below. Note the links below are for the Figure 4 materials, however, the safety and material handling is the same.
