Peopoly Moai 200, resin creeping under fep layer

  • Hi all, I purchased a Moai 200 from matterhackers about a month ago, I’ve only done about 10 prints and I am getting what looks like resin leaking under the FEP layer. There’s no holes in the FEP, but it seems like it’s leaking around the seam where it’s mounted to the aluminum plate. This doesn’t seem like it should be doing this after 10 prints. Is there some solution to this? Leveling is spot on but I’m pretty sure that isnt the cause either.

    Hey David,

    It looks like you may have already reached out to us on our support email but to touch base on what you have here. I would say that it is likely an incorrectly installed FEP sheet in the vat, we have noticed this out of the first batch and as we continue to record data on the Moai 200 we will send the information back to Peopoly for adjustments in their production. For now, I would say to disassemble the vat and clean out all the resin with water and alcohol, from there reassembling the vat with one of the replacement FEP sheets included in the accessories.
