FEP film is the double-layered and transparent foil which is installed in the rack attached to the resin tank. It creates a clean way for the UV light to cure liquid resin during the whole printing process. The FEP film requires replacement once it becomes bent, deformed, or perforated during printing or operation of the printer. Otherwise, the printer will not produce successful prints. Little scratches and smudges that can appear on the FEP film surface do not influence the printing quality. Therefore, if your prints are of low quality and you notice irremovable signs of wear on the FEP film surface, replace the film according to this manual.

To extend the FEP film lifespan, inspect and clean the resin tank regularly according the manual.

The new FEP film does not require unfolding after taking it out of the packaging.

Securing the FEP Film Rack, part 1

In order for the FEP film to be properly tight, you have to create a bulge while securing both parts of the FEP film rack. To do that, place the FEP replacement jig from the Starter Kit or an item that is 13mm thick underneath the film. Next, perforate the FEP film in the screw holes with the tweezers and slightly tighten the silver screws in a diagonal order. Once the assembly of the FEP film rack is finished, fully tighten all the screws.

Remember to press the rack while securing each screw to keep the bulge of the FEP film.
