Inspecting the XiP Pro Membrane

The Resin Vat Assembly is a 3-piece assembly of a rigid frame, a replaceable membrane, and a face seal that provides a leak-proof seal between the frame and membrane.

The Membrane is a consumable part and becomes worn over time. Replace the Membrane when wear begins to affect print quality. The Membrane should be immediately replaced if there is any visible damage or evidence of resin leakage.

  1. Tap on the “Dashboard” icon and then tap on the resin vat unlock icon to unlock the magnetic clamps that hold the vat onto the LCD.
  2. Lift off the resin vat.
  3. Clean the vat thoroughly to avoid dripping resin when the vat is turned over.
  4. Flip the vat over and place it on a clean, flat surface.
  5. Unlatch the 4 latches holding the Membrane onto the frame and lift off the Membrane.
  6. Hold the new membrane by the edges and place it in the recess (screws facing up).
    • While handling the membrane frame make sure not to touch the clear membrane.
  7. Make sure the Membrane is seated snug on the face seal to prevent leaks and close all 4 latches that hold the Membrane onto the frame.
  8. Turn the resin vat right side up and then place the vat back onto the LCD.

Membrane Handling Precautions.

  • Handle by the frame only, avoid touching the Membrane.
  • Keep resin off the light-engine side of the membrane.
  • Membrane intended to be seated over the LCD screen only. Always keep it in a bag or provided container.
  • If changing to a different resin, clean the resin side only using a lint free wipe moistened with IPA.
  • Shelf life of the new Membrane is 2 years stored in a sealed bag.

To prevent damage to the membrane:

  • Check Build Plate for cured resin or burrs before use, and clean if any.
  • Filter resin or run a Clean job after any failed build.
  • Inspect membrane by using the provided silicone spatula to and avoid using sharp objects.
  • Inspect light engine surfaces and seals for cracks, burrs, or damage.
  • Clean light engine surface with 99% IPA using lint free cloth before installing membrane.
