great, but i don’t know how you did the trick … i tried the paper did not do any thing at all exept bending. is the tank removable? in your video it looks removable, also I had to use something stronger, I choose a plastic spoon inserted and slightly apply steady pressure until the block removes so i doubt a piece of paper can apply the same pressure. but that residual hardened raisin is not allways there and why should it be there in the first place? and also the film breaks to easily i had to replace it, since there is no realy documentation on how to do this i probably did it wrong and got a major spill of raisin all over the table (sent you pictures of this) can you please poste more videos on how to do things like:
– how to replace the film in case it breaks (this is what will happen offten)
– what to do when the paper trick does not work (which will likely never do)

before any of you tries to replace the filter call support or ask for help!! don’t try to do this yourself!!!!!! look here this is what will happen: fotos of my disater;
even dough i did it very carefully something went wrong … e.v. someone can help fix and advise on how i should clean up the mess within the printer …

just sharing some insights on my ResinSpill desaster: (the guys at miicraft where very helpfull explaining all the bits, thansk guys!) how ever it si not yet clear why it happened, but here are a few first recommendations:
– i replaced the teflon filter, if you do this make sure you replace it exactly the same way as it was before (i did but it spilled) … glass under the teflon film, after the replacement observe the printer!! and put it on top of news-paper or on a surface you can clean easely …
– but!! it is not clear if this is the reason for the spill i had! (this is not a normal case!)
– observe the printer!!! don’t let it run on its own!! so you can prevent large spills (probably after one or two prints without spills it will probably be ok for ever)
– no spill happened when i got the printer so the cause could be the replacement so it could be the two release screws have to be tightened more or to the maximum! (this is not sure, this is just an assumption)
– take your time never rush and try to keep smiling even if you fail! (and if you are not sure ask support thes guys are really helpfull)
– in my case resin got under the teflon-film and onto the mirror (very bad according to miicraft), this is puzzling the tech’s at miicraft, so this is definietly not a common case …
– both the glass and the teflon film can be cleaned with alcohol (be carefull with the teflon-film) also make sure to examin it to make sure there are no kracks or hohles.

I got my replacement machine (thank you miicraft) and printed on 🙂 obviously something close to the resin tank serioiusly broke, probably some plastic seal that prevents the resin from leaving the tank. so be very very carefull when you change the teflon filter or be very carefull not to break it 🙂 at all, just carefully clean it with a tissue after you are done printing, its a 5 to 10 minutes procedure worth doing carefully! this is probabyl the most fragile part of it … (with all this i still love the printer, the results are great!)

the new cleaning function is great!
dont start cleaninig the resin out of the tank, just hit the clean resin menu, wait a while, it will harden the residual resin so you can remove it as one block, after that there is less to clean 🙂
this is far less messy ! you can do it two times if there is lots of resin left in the tank.
after that use a soft paper towel and plastic gloves to clean the rest.
use plastic gloves!! they protect the teflon film to get scratched by your fingernails!! its also good advice not to get too much of the resin on your fingers (its not dangerous at all but it smells and looks dangerous)
make sure you clean your resin tank properly! even if the resin will not dry in air, it will make your teflon film last longer!
