Resin Tray Kit - Figure 4
You will hand-pour resin into the resin tray before printing. The Figure 4 Standalone Printer comes with one resin tray per machine purchased. Purchasing multiple resin trays gives the user the ability to easily print with two different materials on one machine. The more resin trays you have, the more materials you can print with. If the resin tray is sufficiently cleaned in between builds, it is also possible to use a different print material in the same resin tray. However, not every resin can share the same tray, even if the resin tray is cleaned.Determine the number of resin trays you will require.A: Transparent Membrane - This proprietary membrane creates a layer of oxygen in between the membrane and the bottom of the print material. This feature ensures that print material does not cure on the membrane under normal building conditions.B: Tension Slots - The resin-tray tension arm fastens over these slots.C: Material Fill Levels - These graduated markings represent four different levels to which you can fill the resin tray.D: QR Code/Serial Number - The QR Code has the serial number embedded in its pattern. These give the resin tray a unique identification that can be read by a QR-code scanner.
Storage Garage Kit
The resin-tray garage can be used to store a resin tray with material outside the machine, keeping UV light and contaminants out. The lid can also be used to cover the resin tray while in the machine. WEAR GLOVES: DUE TO THE POSSIBILITY OF RESIN BEING ON THE THE RESIN-TRAY GARAGE, WEAR 100% NITRILE GLOVES WHENEVER HANDLING IT, EVEN IF IT APPEARS CLEAN.
Print Platforms - Figure 4
A Print Surface - Faces downward when printing. The printed part adheres to the holes in the print surface on the underside of the platform. B Alignment Grooves - The flat surfaces of the platform are held to the elevator arms magnetically. The triangular grooves fit over the conical pins on the elevator arms. C QR Code/Serial Number - The QR Code has the serial number embedded in its pattern. These give the print platform a unique identification that can be read by a QR-code scanner.
5 Ways to Store 3D Printer Filament 3D printer filament materials such as PLA, ABS, TPU and PETG require special storage equipment as they are fairly delicate materials. They're easily destroyed by natural elements such as excess or lack of humidity, dust and atmospheric aerosol particles.
