If a large amount of resin overflow or resin may have penetrated into the printer, should immediately stop printing and cut off the power supply. Please learn about the measures that should be taken immediately after resin overflow, the main causes and preventive measures of resin overflow.
1、If the printing is in progress, it should be cancelled on the touch screen.
2、Clean the spilled resin as quickly as possible.
3、If the spilled resin cannot be cleaned immediately, please keep the cover closed to prevent ambient light from solidifying the resin.
A small amount of resin spilled on the outer surface of the printer is not harmful, and it may also drip onto the device during normal use. If a large amount of resin spills onto the print screen or inside the printer, the additional cleaning and support is required to assess and minimize potential damage. If the resin penetrates into the printer, it may damage or corrode the important parts. If a large number of spills occur, take photos of the situation and contact NOVA3D after-sales engineer for help.
Clean the spilled resin
Note：Please wear gloves when cleaning. After handling the resin, the skin should be cleaned with the dishwashing liquid. Do not use alcohol to clean the resin on your skin.
Low fiber paper towels or disposable microfiber nonwoven
a plastic spatula or a cutting knife
Step 1: get the printer ready
1、Disconnect the printer from the power source.
2、Remove the platform first , to prevent the resin from dripping into the LCD screen.
3、Wipe off the resin on the surface of the printing platform. Ambient light will solidify the liquid resin on the surface of the platform, which will lead to the unevenness of the platform.
4、Remove the resin tank and install the UV cover on the printer. Make sure the resin tank does not drip.
5、If a large amount of the resin spills, take pictures of the situation and send them to nova3d after-sales engineer.
Step 2: Check and clean up the outer surface
1、Check the appearance of the acrylic cover.
2、If any resin spills on the inside or outside of the cover, remove the liquid resin from the plastic using the detergent and the paper towels.
Note：Please do not use the alcohol or other chemical detergents to scrub the shell, which may cause the cover to crack .To avoid damaging the cover, please use plastic cleaners only.
3、Use paper towels to absorb the liquid resin on the outer surface of the shell. Let the paper towels absorb the resin completely to avoid staining the entire surface.
4、If the resin on the surface of the shell has solidified, it should be scraped off with a plastic spatula. The metal spatula may scratch the aluminum shell.
The LCD Screen
If the LCD screen is glued with the resin, be sure to use alcohol to clean it. The dirty screen will affect the light transmission, which will lead to the printing failure.
Step 3: Check the Z Axis
1、Please use paper towels or cotton swabs dipped in alcohol to clean the drops of resin on the Z Axis.
2、Using a flashlight to visually inspect the drip box at the bottom of the shaft for resin.
3、Use paper towels to absorb resin.
4、Use the syringe to suck up the flakes of resin.
5、Clean the remaining resin with a small amount of alcohol and some clean paper towels.
6、Use a flashlight to shine down along the guide rod to check whether the internal platform motor of the bearing bottom has the resin penetrating into the bearing along the guide rod. If the resin has penetrated into the bearing or motor, , take a photo and contact with NOVA3D after-sales engineer for further assistance.
7、If the resin is only on the guide rod but not on the platform motor, it can be removed by using paper towels or cotton swabs and a small amount of alcohol.
Reminder：After cleaning the guide rob with alcohol, please use the grease to lubricate the guide rob before printing again, to prevent the platform from running not smoothly.
How to prevent resin overflow
Learn how to determine the common causes of resin overflow and minimize the possibility of resin overflow.
Although there are many reasons for resin overflow , the most common causes include operational errors, the resin tank damaged, and excessive resin addition.
