  • Start the print as you usually do. Don't forget to tighten the screws of the vat and monitor it as it prints.

  • Let the printed base rest upside-down on the plate to let the resin drip off.

  • Wash your model with IPA or bioethanol alcohol.

  • Place the printed model with supports in hot tap water for 60 seconds to remove the supports easily and leave fewer marks.

  • Let your base dry completely, then start the curing process.

  • Paint it as desired to make it look even more unique.
