Tip for printing the last bit of resin in the tank


#1

I am relatively new but I noticed something interesting when trying to print the very last bit of resin in the tank. I noticed that it is best to try to print the model on the side opposite the wiper blade when the resin is extremely low. The reason is because when the resin is super low, the wiper blade pushes the resin to the left after printing each layer and when the resin is extremely low it doesn’t want to move back to the right side of the build plate quick enough (so you can get a dry print) whereas the majority of the remaining resin is on the left side when the build plate drops back down to print the next layer.

So my tip is: print the model on the left side when trying to squeeze a print out of the last little amount of resin in the tank.

Anyone else notice this or have the same findings?
Regards,
Joe

The other tip would be to simply pause the print and take the wiper out it you are nearing the end of the resin in the tank (if your print is on the right side)
