Tank Mixing Maintenance

I’m relatively new to the SLA printing process and the 3L printer specifically. An issue that I ran into recently was the curing of standard resin in our tank which is being stored in the printer itself. It was left sitting for 3 months and when I went to print, the resin was thickened or cured. I think a nice feature to add to the maintenance file is a program to mix the tank without sending a job to the printer which would need to be aborted before the build plate drops.

Or an option to do a manual mixing session (which you’d think priming would do, but honestly it seems despite some whirring inside the printer to basically pre-press the confirm resin selection buttons)
