Emptying and Removing The Vat

I highly recommend buying a large syringe to suck the resin out and run it through a paint filter back into your resin bottle. Find the link at the bottom.

Once your VAT is mostly empty it’s much easier to pour the remainder into the filter by hand.

Every time you remove your VAT you expose your LCD to dust, hair, falling objects like build plates and resin. This is just one of the reasons to level in the VAT.

  1. First remove your build plate, you DON’T want it to drip resin down on your exposed screen.
  2. Remove the VAT
  3. Remove the resin using IPA, even water washable.
  4. Dry it using clean paper towels.
  5. Buff streaks out using a lint free cloth.
  6. Blue painters tape to remove any dust and hair. 
  7. Proceed to Step 8.
