Cleaning the LCD


Dust, smudges, and/or lint present on the resin 3D printer's LCD surface may affect printing. In order to increase your success rate in resin 3D printing, we recommend you keep your LCD clean at all times. 


Dry Cleaning:

Use a rubber air blower to gently remove all visible dust and lint from the surface of your resin 3D printer’s LCD.


Wet Cleaning:

Apply a small amount of 95% sanitizing alcohol on the printer’s LCD to remove any cured resin, smudges, and/or fingerprints present on the LCD. Use a soft kitchen paper towel or a fiber cloth and wipe in one direction to clean the LCD surface thoroughly.


If resin has spilled or leaked onto the LCD screen, follow the steps below to remove cured resin.

Step 1: Dampen soft paper towels in 95% sanitizing alcohol, then cover the cured resin with soaked paper towels.

 

Step 2: Cover the soft paper towels with a plastic wrap between 12 to 24 hours based on the extent of the resin spill or leakage to prevent sanitizing alcohol from evaporating. As sanitizing alcohol will soften cured resin, make sure to spray it wherever there is a spillage or leakage.

 

Step 3: Carefully remove the softened resin
(DO NOT scrape with sharp metal objects. This is to prevent the LCD screen from becoming damaged).
