Printer Care

Postby RobMiles » Mon Aug 24, 2015 3:40 am

Hi. I'm an early adopter having fun with the printer:

I've a fair amount of success and I'm enjoying the journey so far. However, I do have some questions.

What do you do when you have finished? If I spend an evening printing do I just leave the vat with resin in it and come back tomorrow? Or do I always have to empty the vat and clean it if I want to print some more tomorrow?

In a perfect world I'd just put the entire printer in a cool, dark, place and then get it out the next day. Otherwise I'm going to waste a lot of precious resin as I keep emptying and refilling and run the risk of spilling stuff.

Any thoughts folks?

If it is a day or two, I just cover the vat with cardboard or place a box over the Nano to keep the ambient light away from it.

If it is going to be more than a few days, I pour the resin into a spare plastic brown bottle, like the kind that hydrogen peroxide comes in, and keep it there. I'd reuse that old resin and add new resin as needed to keep it mixed.
