VAT Clean after a failed print

When you have a failed print the fastest and safest way to remove the cured resin is to do a VAT clean. Removing the VAT to empty the resin is not recommended.

In this example I have no resin for educational reasons only. You do need resin in the VAT for this to work.

If you don’t have old supports you can use a 2nd glove. Just push and hold it into the corner during the duration of the exposure.

I recommend printing a plate of the Lychee Cleaners whenever you have some leftover resin. They work great and can be reused or tossed with the sheet of cured resin and all your shameful failures.
