What is Material Tray?
The material tray consists of two plastic frames with a special membrane called Pre-Stretched Assembly (PSA) between them, which fits snugly over a piece of glass when installed on the printer.
The material tray is consumable with an approximate lifespan of up to 150 prints. Order a new material tray before the current tray expires or becomes damaged. The expired material tray can be disposed of.
As the build platform moves up taking the exposed part away from the PSA, it pulls the membrane up finally releasing it and allowing the parts to separate. The build platform then moves back down and the next image in the sequence is projected; the cycle repeats itself.
Important: Use a different material tray for each type of material to avoid contamination. If that is not possible, clean the material tray carefully and thoroughly.
Install Material Tray
To install the material tray:
1. Push forward the red latches on the right and left of the build area.
2. Lower the material tray into the printer until it is fully seated.
3. Pull the red latches towards you to lock the material tray. It will click in place.
Important: Locking the red latches down is very important. If they are not locked properly, the material will splash inside the printer!
