Replacing the XiP Pro Glass LCD Protector

The LCD screen is covered by a glass screen protector to shield the LCD from damage. The protector comes pre-installed on factory LCDs, thus only needs to be replaced if it has been damaged.

Damaged protective glass can potentially puncture membranes and cause resin leaks, so we recommend inspecting it regularly. A replacement kit can be purchased from our online store, and it includes:

  • A replacement glass LCD cover
  • Cover removal tool
  • Dust-removal Stickers
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Alcohol-wipe

Removing Cracked LCD cover

  1. Raise the z-stage arm to the top.
  2. Power down the printer and open up the door.
  3. Remove the build plate, resin cartridge, and resin vat from the printer to expose the LCD screen.
  4. Gently peel up the corners of the cracked protective glass using the flat edge of the cover removal tool.
  5. Once corners are pulled up, peel cracked cover away from the LCD, being careful not to touch the LCD screen surface.
  6. Using microfiber cloth, wipe the LCD screen with a window cleaner solution and remove residue and dust from the LCD screen.
  7. Make sure that there is no dust on the LCD. Remove any visible particulates with the dust-removal stickers.

Note 1: Do not use sharp objects which may damage the LCD screen.

Note 2: Do not use rough cloth or paper towels which may scratch the LCD screen.

Applying Replacement LCD Cover

This process is similar to applying a gorilla glass over a mobile phone LCD screen.

  1. There should be a protective film with a pull tab on each side of the replacement cover. Only remove the protective films when required during the application process.
  2. Lay the replacement cover down on a clean, dust-free work surface.
  3. Using the pull tab, gently peel away the bottom protective film.
  4. Handle the cover only by the edges, hold the cover over the LCD and match up the corners so that they are aligned.
  5. Gently push the glass to slightly arch the cover toward the LCD and lower until the middle of the cover rests on the LCD glass.
  6. Slowly lower and let go of the edges of the cover until it settles entirely onto the LCD.
  7. Using the hard plastic provided with the kit, gently scrape out any air bubbles that may remain beneath the cover.
  8. Carefully peel the upward-facing protective film away from the cover.
