Air Bubbles In Clear Resin Okay?

I have just set up the Form 1+ but I don’t want to start a build yet because there are air bubbles in the resin. I would assume that it would affect the printing process. The bottle of clear resin says to shake it before use, which makes it bubbly. Should I wait until the air bubbles are completely gone from the resin or am I just being overly cautious? Thanks!

Don’t worry about the air bubbles. When the build platform comes down it presses against the silicon and forces all the bubbles to pop or pushes them out. Nothing to worry about. Hit that print button and light it up.


Thank You! Much appreciated! I’ll just fire her right on up then!

Shouldn’t be an issue but i usually wait for the fine bubbles to dissipate (about 10-15 minutes) then start. I just err on the side of caution when I do printing.

Thank you for the feedback! I have made about 3 prints so far and the air bubbles seem to be a non-issue.

I asked this same question a little while back since it was my first time using the clear resin. Everybody here was very helpful and reassuring. I think they were just more noticeable in clear than in white so I was a little worried. Nothing to worry about though!
