Cleaning the Resin Tank after a Failed Print

For successful prints, it is essential that the Form 1+ resin tank remains clean and free of debris. Occasionally, a failed print will leave small, partially cured pieces of resin floating in the tank, or hard cured resin stuck to the PDMS in the base of the tank. It is good practice to inspect and clean the tank after every print.

1. Inspect the resin tank


Using the Form Finish Kit scraper, very gently scrape across the PDMS layer with the blade at a low shallow angle.

2. Position scraper underneath cured resin

3. Remove the cured resin


If you see or feel any resin cured in your tank, it’s essential to remove debris by cleaning the tank or the next print will fail. Use a fine-tooth comb and/or a paint filter with a 190 micron mesh size to thoroughly strain liquid resin.
