Peopoly Moai compatible resin vat/tray and build plate, FEP configuration. Includes 3 FEP and gasket sets and 2 acrylic support plates. This vat can also be used with non Moai printers. 115mm X 115mm build area.
This vat kit comes with the Peopoly Moai compatible build plate, it is other wise the same as the Form 1/1+ compatible vat and can use the same replacement materials and parts. Please Note: when used with the Peopoly Moai printer this vat must be used with the matching build plate, attempting to use the vat with the standard Moai build plate will result in damage to the vat the printer or both.
The FEP configuration of the vat is best used with "standard" 3rd party resins (resins that are not described as Moai compatible) such as Fun To Do, Makejuice SF etc.
Since FEP film is "stickier" than PDMS standard 3rd party resins work best when using the FEP film vat configuration. Most standard 3rd party resins have a harder cure during printing which produces prints that are less prone to having layer separation problems during printing. Because of the hardness of the prints you can often use fewer supports which can cut down on the need for cleanup work on the finished print. Printing with most standard 3rd party resins will tend to yield prints that are less "green" after printing than prints made using Moai compatible resins so using 3rd party resins may lessen the need for uv post processing if prints are well cleaned after printing. Build plate adhesion is also improved since the FEP film can take a very high build plate adhesion layer exposure. Resin costs will, in general, be lower when using 3rd party resins. This vat comes assembled with 1 FEP/gasket set and 1 acrylic support plate installed, 2 replacement FEP/gasket sets, 1 spare acrylic support plate and the build plate assembly.
