Just wondering if the "water soluble" is water soluabel enough to be cleaned off the build plate and the print if they were inserted in the CW1 together?   Thanks

No clue and I don't care. Because it doesn't matter if you use TPM, IPA or water. Your cleaning solution will become hazardous waste and you must dispose of it properly.

I've been using Elegoo's water washable resin exclusively since getting my SL1 working. I've fallen into a 10 minute cycle in the wash with the platform attached to the top, then I remove the parts and hold them in the wash by hand so I can move them around and get them good and clean. I've also found I need 3 10 minute dry cycles to get them dry enough for good curing results.

I need to pull up the firmware code and submit a PR to allow for longer than 10 minute cycles...

While that is true, water is much cheaper and more readily available than IPA.

Once the resin is cured, is it still considered to be hazardous or toxic?  If not, leave the water rinsate in the sun or CW1 UV light long enough to clear, let the water evaporate and throw the sold residue in the trash.
