The material tray is a 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.
Cleaning the Pre-Stretched Assembly
The Pre-Stretched Assembly (PSA) is located inside the material chamber and is comprised of a film and a plastic frame.
1. Check the film at the bottom of the material tray whenever the material is removed.
2. Look for pinholes, punctures, ripples, and other signs of stress. A slightly cloudy film is normal and will not affect the print quality.
3. Use Manual Debris Removal to remove cured material from the surface of the film assembly at the end of a print, or access it using the following sequence – Home > Settings > Manual Debris Removal.
4. Once the exposure time is set on the Manual Debris Removal page, tap Expose – the projector will expose the full printing area to light for the set exposure duration. Use the rubber spatula from the Starter Kit to gently remove the cured material from the surface of the film assembly.
Important: Clean the material tray with a clean dry paper towel. Using chemicals or alcohol to clean anything that comes in contact with material may cause contamination, resulting in printing issues.
Cleaning the Safety Glass
The Safety Glass is under the material chamber and consists of a glass panel and a metal frame inside the Einstein printer.
- Check the safety glass for streaks or fingerprints, which can affect print quality.
- Wipe the safety glass with an ammonia-free glass cleaner when needed.
Important: If the glass cracks or is badly scratched please contact Service & Support.
