I purchased a used Form 2 setup including the Form Wash. I’m not sure if FormLabs ever iterated on the design at all, but I was curious about other people’s experiences with the Wash. I’ve noticed that there’s a lingering alcohol smell near the station, so that leads me to think that even when the station hasn’t been opened recently, that there’s not quite enough sealing keeping things closed from evaporation. Since I have to mail order the IPA, that ‘angel’s share’ isn’t really awesome.
Has anyone had any luck with fitting a thin gasket of some kind to the lid to better seal the tank lid against evaporation when not in use/closed? I’m also contemplating if there’s a large silicone wrap of some kind I might be able to use to help reduce evaporation when the station isn’t in frequent use.
I’m also interested in hearing where people source their IPA from, since I’m not creating in industrial quantities. I ended up purchasing 2 gallons from an eBay seller, but, I can’t help but think there’s got to be better pricing out there.
