I saw something similar- I had GREY resin sloshed out of the tank by the wiper arm… though on the far side of the tank.
It may have been related to a series of motor problems to which printer slowly succumbed… the wiper ended up also routinely striking the print.
However- at the time of the spill, I was running a new tank and cartridge of Grey V4. And I had noticed that during the print, which had a LOT of supports, the Grey Resin in the tank was FOAMING… it had a literal HEAD on top of most of the resin- and the wiper arm would pile up the foam at either end of the tank well higher than the rim.
This was confirmed as the cause by the fact that the resin that I saw UNDER the rim of the Amber cover had literally been flung INTO the inside lip of the amber cover- and leaked down onto the aluminum from there. ( check your’s- i’m sure its got resin inside the cover rim.)
If it was caused by the foaming of the Grey- then it should not be that large a spill…
The grey catchtray on my form 2 contained nearly all the spilled resin and it had not been enough to flow to the down drain at front left.
Check the Tank to see if the Rubber layer at the bottom of the tank has peeled away or shows extensive air bubbles around its sealed edge… where it might have leaked underneath… but if its a slosh by the wiper arm…hopefully a thorough cleaning would be the only downside.
Were there any error messages during the printing process the spill occurred on?
For me- the clean up was relatively easy since none of the resin had gone down that drain slot… i could get at the tray area to clean it-
however- that was just the beginning of a host of issues we started having with the printer- we did not have another spill, but we had increasing numbers of Motor out of bounds errors- warnings of obstructions when there weren’t any… the Z motor started making a terrible grinding, groaning noise- like a chewbacca impression- and it kept getting worse until I could not get it to print anything.
I ended up taking movies of the thing showing that the platform would lift… but NOT high enough for the print to clear- and the wiper arm would comes across and strike the print- breaking off supports that ended up being debris and obstacles in the resin. Or the laser would start printing a layer without the platform even being down… and that the machine would pause to “sense resin” while the platform was entirely submerged- pushing the resin level way up past the top fill line.
So- I don’t know if any of these motor issues that ultimately saw Formlabs replace our printer entirely were related to the spill we had. Or if your spill portends future issues of a similar kind.
I tend to suspect that the wiper arm moves across rather vigorously and if the resin is all frothed up with lightweight bubbles… it has a high likelihood of sloshing resin over the rim of the tank.
I have already posted my 2 cents in a thread about getting an antifoaming agent added to the new Grey V4 resin… to try and keep the foaming from causing more spills.
I think they will send you instructions on how to get the bezel off so you can clean up the internal resin…
However- I would be intensely curious to see what you find when you do so.
Like- Modern refrigerators have a collection pan under the fridge to collect condensed water dripping off the coils-
Or flowing out of the freezer during the defrost cycle. Most folks never touch them as they are intended to hold enough water that the collected water just evaporates as fast as it accrues.
Ever since I first noted that grey plastic catchtray for minor spills and that it drained down a slot behind the bezel- I have wondered where Formlabs had that drain spill to. seems to me there ought to be some sort of large catchbasin under the drain outfall to try and further contain any massive spill- If it could hold one liter plus the average contents of one tray… then it could contain the entirety of the Form 2’s largest potential spill.
If it just comes out the seams at the bottom… that seems to me to be a big opportunity for a design revision that would make it easier to contain and clean up any large spill.
Imagine of the bottom of the Form2 included some low tray that could simply be pulled out like the crumb tray on a toaster or the water tray on a fridge.
So that spillway drain up top simply piped the spill directly into a the catchtray.
so if you open the thing up- post pictures of what you find inside- I want to know where that drain empties, myself.
