I feel like this works so well formlabs should give me something for posting this.
When you’re printing something flat without supports (what I usually do) you can effortless remove the print without damaging it by…
- Squirting some IPA on the print.
- Use a can of air gently (don’t put the nozzle right on the part) to blow away excess resin and IPA.
- Wipe away excess resin off the build platform.
this is the trick
- Turn the can of air upside down and spray the part and along its edges. You will notice as the cold liquid hits the part it will lift off the surface. From here you can gently tap the part off the platform.
I learned this trick using my original 3D printer. It works because the plastic changes shapes when it gets cold and thus breaks its bond to the build platform.
