Resin tank storage after printing completed?

First time user of Form2. I’m done printing for the day, do I just leave the resin tank with the resin in it in the printer, or does it need to be drained and cleaned? Will the resin (black) be affected if left overnight in the resin tray?
Thanks, Ken

You can just leave the resin tank in the printer. The amber cover blocks any harmful light. See here for more details.

Black resin seems to store pretty well in the tank.

Grey and White tend to settle out and you end up with pigment on the PDMS layer. With those you have to mix the resin in the tank before you print. I use the metal spatula to gently mix the pigment that settled back in. This doesn’t neet to be perfectly mixed because the Form 2 will mix during heat up.
