Vat Cleaning Function

The vat cleaning function exposes the entire LCD with UV light for several seconds, forming a thin layer of cured resin on the FEP film. We suggest performing this function if your 3D prints have failed, and a large amount of cured resin particles are scattered around the resin vat.

Vat Cleaning

  1. Fill the vat with resin. 
  2. On the touch panel, click TOOLS, then select VAT CLEANING.
  3. Set the exposure time to 30~60 seconds. Then click NEXT.
  4. A thin layer of resin should cure on the FEP film.

Remove the Thin Layer

  1. Pour resin back into the bottle by using the funnel provided in the toolbox. Pour slowly to avoid spillage. Click here to learn more. 
  2. Use a clean paper towel to remove excess resin remaining in the vat.
  3. Spray 95% sanitizing alcohol onto the thin layer of resin. Let it sit there for a while as the resin softens up.
  4. Then use the plastic scraper included in the toolbox to remove the thin layer of cured resin.

Clean the Resin Vat

  1. Spray sanitizing alcohol and use a kitchen paper towel to wipe off excess resin present on the FEP film.
  2. Repeat the step above, and clean the edges until the entire resin vat has been thoroughly cleaned.
  3. Attach the resin vat back onto the LCD 3D printer.
