Resin lifespan

Hi all,
I am waiting for the delivery of the Form 3L. While the time goes, I was having a read around this forum and it started building up my concerns about the printer and materials. The biggest I have now, before even starting all the fun is: how long will the material last in the tank if not used all? Do I have to shake it from time to time, to keep it healthy?
Appreciate some advice.

Hi @Kicked,

Great question! The answer will depend on a variety of factors, including the type of resin and how much the tank has previously been used. For more information, be sure to check out our support article!

With regards to shaking the resin, the wiper in the resin tank will mix the resin before and during printing. However, it’s always a good idea to shake the resin cartridges before starting a print!
