Hey all, just put the finishing Bow on the guide “How To Replace Your FEP Film - Resin Printer Maintenance Tip”.

I’ve done this process a couple of times and have refined it :slight_smile: so come see exactly how I do it and save yourself making my mistakes. Replacing a FEP is a normal part of the life of a Resin 3D Maker, so come learn the Elite Method.

After owning a resin printer for some time at a certain point you will need to replace the original FEP Release Film that comes installed from the factory on a DLP or SLA machine with a new one.

We are having issues with replacing our FEP. We did the install the exact same why you guys do, but after it sticks to the LCD screen and creates air bubbles between the FEP and LCD screen. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
