As much as I’ve seen build platform dripper parts so you can get liquid resin from the build platform back to the tank, is there any assembly I could print to keep the TANKS in angle while putting the resin back on the CARTs?
In winter the resins quickly get cold and wayyyy slow to empty!
Thank you for your question; I’m more in need of clarification. Resin transferring should be done in a room at roughly 20 to 22 degrees Celsius to assist with flow as it is viscous. From where are you pouring resin?
Otherwise, you can still store resin in the tank by using provided tank carriers. It’s possible Support can assist, as well, with these questions.
You shouldn’t need to pour resin out of resin tanks unless you are putting them away for long term storage. We do not recommend pouring resin from tanks back into cartridges, as there is a risk of contamination. For long-term storage, we advise pouring resin into a separate container (wide-mouth opaque HDPE or polypropylene bottles). Please see Resin care for more detail on this.
To address your initial question, your best bet would be to use the tank tool to help push resin out of the tank. It’s understandable that in colder temperatures, the resin would not flow as well. You could pour the resin out of the tank spout into a funnel or similar.
may i ask which printer you are using? Form2 or Form3? I have the same issue here. But i am planning to draw a dripping stander myself for form2. If you also use Form 2, i might share the file i was done.
If you are recovering resin from a tank to put back in it’s 1L container, I would put it in a dish rack, on a shelf to pour down into a funnel in the container.
It’s true, you shouldn’t have to transfer the resin back, but I understand there could be certain circumstances.
I would also like to inquire if anyone has come up with a way to help parts drip back into the tank after print. It seems that some orientations of parts, don’t let the resin drip back into the tank once it’s finished and I loose a lot of resin that still clings to my parts as I put them in the wash tank. I was wondering if FORMLABS might consider a tilting stage mount. I realize this could cause a slew of issues when your are trying to keep the stage as flat to the tank as possible. But having a way to tilt the stage on a completed part could help me a lot. Resin’s aren’t cheap.
