Time between printing and cleaning

I’m really sorry if this has been covered but i’ve searched as best I can but cant seem to find an answer.

Does it matter how quickly I clean prints after they have printed? I’ve just bought a Form 3 - my first print will finish at 3am - I wont wake up until at least 8am…

Is that an issue?

In general, no, it doesn’t matter. I’ve left parts in the printer for at least a week after printing before washing with no negative side effects. Leaving unwashed parts outside the printer would not be recommended, though. There might be some edge cases where speed of cleaning after printing makes a difference, but I can’t think of any among the various Formlabs resins.

Thanks Ike, appreciate the quick response!
