In the most recent Maintenance and Care articles, FormLabs says the standard Resin Tank should be replaced after 1,000 to 3,000 layers, and the Resin Tank LT will typically last twice as long. Because that’s how FormLabs specifies the lifetime of the Tanks, we need a simple way to view the number of layers printed on each Tank in our Library.
I can look in Preform and see a sort of heat map history of each Tank.
That is amazing!
Preform is already keeping track of prints associated with each Tank. It seems like it would be a short step to also tally the number of Layers printed in each Tank.
The more information I have about how much more life I can expect from a Tank, the less likely I am to have catastrophic issues. The fewer catastrophic issues I have, the less I bother Technical Support.
FormLabs, will you please give us a way to track the number of layers printed on our Tanks?
