Cleaning After a Resin Spill

Cleaning the LCD

  1. Turn off your 3D printer and unplug the printer. 
  2. Remove the plastic case and thoroughly clean up any excess resin present around the vat. 
  3. Then remove the resin vat and place a piece of soft kitchen paper towel beneath it, just in case the spill was caused by a puncture on the FEP film. 
  4. Use a soft kitchen paper towel or tissue to soak up excess resin present on the LCD. When performing this step, DO NOT scratch the LCD. 
  5. After cleaning up the resin, spray a small amount of 95% sanitizing alcohol on the LCD. Then use a soft kitchen paper towel or a fiber cloth and wipe in one direction to thoroughly clean the surface of the LCD.
  6. Continue step 5 until the resin 3D printer’s LCD is not sticky anymore.
If there is any cured resin left on the LCD, please spray 95% alcohol and let it sit for 15~30 minutes as it softens up the resin. Then use the plastic scraper included in the toolbox to remove the layer of cured resin.

Checking Other Parts of the 3D Printer

  1. Make sure the Z-rod is intact.
  2. Check the interior of the resin 3D printer and clean it thoroughly with tissue or paper towels. *Important: DO NOT spray sanitizing alcohol. 
After cleaning up your 3D printer, store the machine in the darkroom for at least half a day. Then check to see if any resin drips out from the 3D printer. 

Checking the Status of Your 3D Printer

  1. Plug in the power adapter and turn on the resin 3D printer.
  2. Perform the Z-axis calibration test to check the status of the Z-Rod.
  3. Run a dry test print to check the status of the 3D printer’s LCD.
A dry test print is running a print without attaching the resin vat onto the 3D printer. This is typically used for checking the status of the resin 3D printer’s LCD.
