RE: Resin Leaks between tank and frame

Day 11: after 20 something 3-5h prints, I have finally drained the tank. Mainly to get ready to move to a new house. Still no sign of leaks at all. Still holding up extremely well.

Unprompted I heard from Prusa this morning. Now they are acknowledging that I'm not the only one with this issue and they are looking into possible tank redesigns. Good news to hear.

RE: Resin Leaks between tank and frame

It feels like it never ends with this printer... 

I mentioned the disaster with flexible resin. I assumed that it was not having the exposure times correct, but it turns out that the LCD is messed up. It only has 161 hours on it according to the firmware.

Working it with Prusa, but as the cable and connection looks good I expect that resin from one of the leaks or products used to clean it up leaked into the panel or one of the times I had to remove the panel to clean under it it might have gotten bumped.

So potentially another side effect of the leaking tanks is a risk of damaging the LCD either directly or during the cleanup.

At least I thought ahead and ordered a spare LCD when I ordered the printer so I won't have to wait for a new one (currently out of stock) once I see what Prusa may want to do about it.

Looks like Prusa resolved the issue with the SL1S tank: https://forum.prusaprinters.org/forum/postid/472729/

Nice, I wasn't aware there was an SL1S model yet. Been a bit busy, however still printing strong with the o-ring and original FEP from the 24/11/2020 post =D It survived a move, and probably easily another 20-30 prints so far.

So far, so good!

At least so far, no sign of any leak with water in my early testing.  I'm nearing the end of my second pre-sliced example print, after which I'll pull the tank and examine it after resin fill time of about 6 hours and a bit, with photos and impressions.  So far, the SL1S has performed exactly as I'd hoped it would.
