Build plate drip sideways due to static charges??

Hi,

When dripping, the drips go sideways and leak exactly where you want no resin... near the LCD crack. It was worst when the plate was getting to its home.. it was really going sideways, the video only shows when it was a bit less intense because I had to remove gloves and find my phone. IMG_3632

What can I do to stop that??

Wow. I have never seen mine do that. Is your printer connected with proper grounding in the electrical outlet?

@ejberg

yes, regular  3 pins plug here in canada. So it's supposed to be grounded properly

I don't know if grounding the printer has anything to do with this effect or not. I just can't think of any other plausible reason.
