Fasten the resin vat and make sure to tighten the screws. Make sure that the surface of the 3D printer and the resin vat are both clean.

Then shake the Water-Washable Dental Model resin evenly for approximately 1 minute before pouring it into the resin vat.

When pouring resin, make sure it does not exceed half the height of the resin vat.
