Setting Up Your Wash+Cure

 

The Wash+Cure is an all-in-one automated post processing system for washing and curing. In Wash Mode, magnetic stirrers agitate the solvent bath to provide a uniform cleaning result. While in Cure mode, a rotating base platform enables a uniform light exposure on all side of your printed part.

Product Setup

  1. Place the unit on a sturdy and level worktable.

  2. Plug the power cord into the power socket at the back of the unit and the other end into a power outlet.

  3. Turn on the Power switch. Upon startup, the default mode is: Wash.

Solvents 

⚠️ Use appropriate protective equipment when handling resin and solvents, including chemical-resistant nitrile gloves, safety goggles, smock, and vapor respirator if recommended by the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) of the solvent. If a SDS has not been provided by the seller, it should be provided upon request.

 

The Wash+Cure is compatible with 2 types of solvents: Nexa3D’s xCLEAN solution and Isopropyl Alcohol. Each one of these solvents has specific benefits and you can find their differences below for your application.

 

Nexa3D’s xCLEAN

  • 3x the saturation limit of isopropyl alcohol

  • Eco-friendly

  • More effective at cleaning parts due to its small molecular size

  • requires a final wash in water or isopropyl alcohol to wash off excess

98+% Isopropyl Alcohol

  • Required for Biocompatible and hydroscopic applications

  • 1/3 the saturation limit of Nexa3D’s xClean solution

  • Doesn’t require a final rinse, and parts can dry immediately after final bath

 

🔥 Most cleaning solvents are flammable. Don’t use near open flame and ensure adequate ventilation and spill containment measures are in place. Consult the safety data sheet (SDS) of the washing solvent you are using.
