Questions about operation compared to 1.2

I've been thinking about how amazing the new machine looks and have a few questions about general running procedures.

Since there is now no vat movement, I assume the resin will need to be mixed more often? Do you suggest emptying the vat between prints? Is there some sort of plastic hand sweeper that can be used in between the prints to mix the resin but not damage the (incredible and amazing) coating the new vats have?

The machine comes with a "kit" for sweeping the vat surface (squeege) and for occasional stirring and tools for filtering debris from the resin if needed.

Hi...i am a new user here. I think the kit itself has the inbuilt feature to perform your task. Just check the manual and instruction that how to use this and perform accordingly.

The stirring and vat sweeping feature is on the v1.2 B9. The stirring is manual in the Core Machine, done between print sessions. No need for sweeper in the Core because it is direct lift tech and there is no x motion, only Z.

I would think a silicone spatula used for cooking would work really well.. Its flexible and soft. I always used a credit card to stir on PDMS.. Not the safest. Haha Robert do you still need to attach the 'Justin' support or similar on your cad models?

I use some form at a "Justin" base to avoid lots of small ones. Works great.
