Using the Jig
Attaching the Build Platform to the Jig
With your print facing upwards, push the build platform onto the jig until it sits secure.
Orientations of the Build Platform Jig
Use the jig as a place to rest the build platform. For parts that are difficult to remove, you can hold the jig at an angle and apply more force.
Printer Maintenance Tools
Use to remove fingerprints or smudges from the underside of your resin tank. Do not use on first surface mirrors inside your printer.
PEC*PAD Contaminant Free Wipes
Use to clean the delicate optical mirrors, only when instructed by Formlabs Support. Attempting to clean your mirrors without guidance or using other products may permanently damage your mirrors and void your warranty.
