I wanted a spare so I designed and printed one. The prototype is in the background. This is a first print and if I do another version I will likely shrink it a bit width wise.

Just added a comb version based on a user comment. It was derived from the other thing that is also out there now that was designed to help sweep the vat. It did work but I gave up on it and know not why now!

The one shown was done in Colorfabb NGEN but the next time I run some Colorfabb HT it will get used for a couple more.

This is great! I'm thinking of putting some thin slots along the front so I can pick up the floating bits and pieces in the resin. Thanks for the model.

Thanks for the thanks and if you check out the Thing Files there are a couple more. I had done the vat comb and just transferred the comb part to a spatula.

Awesome! Thanks for that! I shall print them out and try it on my FEP! Hopefully it doesn't scratch too much! :)

I am sure that you are already being very gentle...but...be gentle! Not with the FEP but to keep the LCD below it from harm. There is a temptation to try and remove stuck bits while a vat is on the LCD. I think it is a best practice to always remove the vat before working on it. I place mine into one of my protective trays to protect the bottom of the FEP.

Good point. Hopefully when I get the printer to run so well that there won't be anything stuck on the FEP or floating in the resin! :D
