Compatible with: Form 2
The resin tank is an essential component of the Form 2 3D printer, and it is absolutely vital that it is in perfect condition for you to get the most from your Form 2. The Resin Tank blocks light and is made from shatter-resistant polycarbonate. It comes with a reusable lid and wiper, making it easy to stack tanks and store resin outside of the Form 2.
Unfortunately, it isn’t a matter of if the Form 2’s resin tank will need replacing but when, because over time the polydimethylsiloxane silicone (PDMS) layer covering the base of the tank where the resin sits wears out. When this happens, you must replace the tank. If you do not, then your prints will start to get less and less detailed and consistent, and they may even fail completely. And with 1L resin cartridges costing a fair amount, this isn’t an option.
You will also need to replace your resin tank if the silicone or optical window is scratched or gauged. Working with a damaged resin tank will block the laser, and cause prints to fail.
The good news is that a new resin tank doesn’t cost all that much and it will typically last you through 2-3 bottles of resin, or 2000-3000ml. So home users should get good use out of a resin tank, although industrial users will naturally get through tanks quite quickly.
