Resin printers are uber messy, and so unlike FDM much of what you’ll need is to do with containing the otherwise dangerous chemicals.

So, here’s a short list of everything I use on a daily basis with my D7. YMMV but this keeps me clean and my resin tip top.


Nitrile gloves 

Always have a pair of these on. While resin doesn’t seem to affect my skin, the flavour of it seeps in and so unless I wear gloves, even after washing extensively I’ll still get that acrid flavour unless. URGHH.

Paper towels

You could use kitchen roll, but you then have to touch virgin pieces to rip off the bit you want to use. I find these napkins to be awesome.

ISO, Isopropol Alcohol, IPA

You will need a bunch of this, buy it in 5l flaggans to save costs if you can. You’re gonna want to use it for general cleaning (with towels) and for soaking parts.

An old toothbrush

Perfect for brushing off uncured resin, make sure it’s soft bristled.


Fruit / Vegetable strainer pots

I love these, they make it really easy to make the part from the IPA to water and back again whilst brushing. I use the Sistema KLIP IT Round Food Storage Container, 1.5 L – Clear with Blue Clips.

Jay Cloths

Sometimes you need to use a bit of elbow grease and so kitchen towels aren’t quite up to it. Jay cloths are cheap enough to be disposable but tough enough to take the manliness.

Glass Scraper

The sharper the better, when used straight against the bed this will make part removal really easy.

Sharp snips

For removing supports after printing and before curing. I recommend SZTARA Xuron Durable Electrical Wire Cable Cutters.

Sand paper selection

For removing the support residue and cleaning up print. Start with low grit and move all the way up.

Dental mirror

Helpful for peering behind the print or at the bed before it’s left the vat. I recommend this Vinmax New Bright Durable Dental Mouth Inspection Mirror with LED Light.

Tea Strainer

Perfect for usage with a funnel (below) to help sort failed cured resin from recoverable resin as you pour back into the bottle. I like this one, the TRIXES Tea Strainer Loose Leaf Tea Sieve and Multi Kitchen Utensil 7cm Diameter

To be used with the tea strainer (I zip tie them together).
