OK, Here are the STL files and the finished Build Plate Drip Holder Photos.
Understand that the base of the holder was printed by a friend on a filament printer to save cost. The slider was printed on my Form 2 just last night. I beefed it up from the previous version.
The two parts of the holder. You will need to sand the sides of the slide to get it to slide in but you do want it to be a little tight. Otherwise you will need to use a piece of painters tape to hold in in place once you get it adjusted.
Here are the pieces slid together. Don’t pay any attention to the pencil marks as that was from the use of the last slide. You will need to adjust the slide to a good position once you get in and the build pate in position. Once there it should work each time with no more adjustments.
Build Plate in position on the Form 2 Holder. Here you can see a side view and the “V” that holds the upper corner of the build plate in position. You should orientate the build plate for best drainage of your parts as generally one corner works best than the other three.
The bottom corner of the build plate sits on the top of the wiper handle. Adjusting this handle left to right will get the build plate centered for best drip and also keep the cover from hitting it when it’s closed. The plate will need to remain in the machine for about a half hour or possible longer. I found that sometimes a slight vibration, drumming finger tip lightly on the lower corner will get the resin rolling faster sometimes. If you look closely you can see a drop of resin going off the end of the build plate corner.

Let me know if there any more questions. Do understand that I won’t be available for a few days as I enter the heart hospital early tomorrow for an extensive procedure to fix and issue with congestive heart failure. That was fixed two years ago but went bad so hopefully they can get in and correct the issue.
NOTE: Let the build plate drip some while still in the Form 2 holder to get the initial excess resin off the parts.
Then, remove the BP and flip it over immediately to keep it from dripping all over the place.
Install the Drip Holder in the Form 2 and quickly flip the BP to insert it holding it over the resin tray as you will still have some drips.
Then you can insert the top corner into the Drip Holder and slide the wiper so the handle is centered and then position the bottom of the BP corner on the wiper handle.
