    I'm not sure if anyone is interested but another issue I sometimes have is that the bed is a bit too big. If I want to print something smaller in a different colour, it means emptying the vat, adding loads of resin for a tiny print. I am going to have a try at making a smaller print bed and smaller resin vat so it is less of a hassle to change resins for smaller prints. Is anyone else interested, or just me?

    Count me in @sukhvir! Very important element that could save resin, time and money...

    Very good idea @sukhvir. Note the vat should be heavy enough, or somehow fixed, to avoid the print sticking to the membrane and lifting the vat

    Vatholders

    To avoid vat lifting, I've added a few printable holders to keep the vat in place, download/fork on Onshape from here or on Thingiverse from here :

    I must admit the parts are hard to keep them stick on the build plate... it took me a few attempts.
    It's a simple replacement of the Morpheus door stoppers on the lower left and right side.

    Remove the two screws from the door stopper:

    And reuse the screws to add the first part:

    Then add the second part (with a nail in the hole):

    To allow the second part to swivel:

    Have fun

    Build plate fixture washers

    To avoid the bolt remaining inplace when unscrewing the build plate... another "mod" to the Morpheus: it definitely needs a washer between the build plate fixture :

    Thats the washer I meant to avoid "injuring" the plate holder further!

    And awesome mod for the VAT holder haha! Thanks so much!!!

    Regarding the VAT making it smaller I actually thought of making use of the current VAT plate system and splitting the VAT into two smaller containers so we may be could use TWO VATs with two different silicon color prints at the same time (even if one finishes sooner than the other) by placing them accurately on the plate of the software...

    That would enable multicolor printing (well not actually, just use two different color resins in one go ) in smaller areas and perhaps making use of the MJ+ bottles I bought lol

    Thoughts?



    Quick mockup:

    ...probably peel the foam and reapply again to the vertical parts cutting the holes so at least you get slight stop to the door less is nothing! haha

    @woale any chances you can upload the parts as .STL straight to thingiverse or so? I tried to dl from onshape but i get a weird file extension instead....

    @bolsoncerrado - I love your idea of the 2 vat concept. I'll see what I can come up with.

    The export feature on Onshape allows different formats, but the part(s) need to be selected first. Uploaded STL to Thingiverse and updated post to ease the pain
