Preparing your printer for the first use is important to ensure proper functioning of the device and making the whole printing process easier. The following steps show how to properly unpack and set up the machine. This article also shows how to prepare and start the printing process as well as how to post-process finished prints in a liquid detergent and UV light.

Wear protective clothing, gloves and glasses during all procedures.
Prepare paper towels and keep them in your workplace for wiping up liquids.
Printing and post-processing waste, including empty bottles, failed prints, supports, rafts as well as paper towels with resin residues should be put in the UV Station or in any source of UV light before disposal. Uncured resin has to be disposed of in accordance with national and local regulations concerning hazardous waste.
