Removing the SL1 print

Updated 3 weeks ago ​by Martin Lexa

In this guide, we will go through instructions of what to do when the print is successfully finished and you want to remove it form the printing platform.

When handling resins, always wear protective gloves and always clean up any drops of resin around the printer. In case the resin gets into contact with your skin, wash it off immediately with water and soap. If you experience discomfort (such as itching) or the resin gets in your eyes, seek out a doctor immediately.

  1. After the printing process finishes, open the lid and place the black plastic tray on the printer as depicted below
  1. Use a plastic spatula or paper towels to wipe the top part of the printing platform clean.
  2. Unscrew the black knob at the top of the tower to unlock the printing platform.
  3. Carefully slide the printing platform out, and turn it sideways, so the remaining resin goes
    back to the tank ot to the tray.
  4. Use the bundled metal spatula to remove the print from the printing platform.

Do NOT use your fingernails to remove the prints since the plastic can easily get under your nails and break off. Besides, you should be still wearing gloves.

You should clean the printing platform thoroughly after every print - drops of liquid resin can solidify in sunlight, which would make them difficult to remove. Clean the channel at the top of the printing platform thoroughly. Use isopropyl alcohol to clean the platform.

Inspect the printed sample object. Check for any inaccuracies, missing parts, visible layers/lines, dents, blobs, or other defects, refer to this guide to get rid of them in oyur next print.
