Take heed when they say “don’t store resin in a standard tank for more than a month.” From what I’ve learned, the castable resins are especially hard on tanks. After I was working with BlueCast, I started filtering tanks and storing resin in a quart paint cup with a lid and storing them in a dark cabinet when not printing. I NEVER STORE CASTABLE RESIN IN A TANK ON THE PRINTER, after having a tank with standard Formlabs version 2 castable resin leak.
Even if I store the resin in the tank, I remove it from the printer and store it in the box just in case. If it leaks, it won’t harm the printer. But my method of using a paint filter cone and a quart plastic container is not that much of a hassle if I know I’m not printing right away.
I do my first cast prints tomorrow, and I’ll report back. I am BEYOND THRILLED that Formlabs has a new castable wax resin, and can’t wait to see the results. I’d much prefer purchasing from and supporting Formlabs…I really appreciated the all-in-one system with the dispenser bottles of resin and not having to cure or print in open mode.
