This has been washed with IPA and a clean soft cotton cloth (not in the photo showing drops of IPA from a spray bottle)

I am using Elegoo Grey Resin from a 500g bottle freshly opened in the last week - but it did have a production date of November 2018 and according to the bottle had a 12months expiry.

I think i need to get on Amazon and order a couple of bottles of resin and a pack of FEP films.

Thoughts?

Thanks

I don't know the others, but I can't see the pictures.

pictures are fine for me, but NOT the FEP. I would change it soon. Happy FEP-srewing ;-)

Ok thanks for the replies.

Pictures are hosted on Imgur. Wonder what's blocking them for you?

Mine looks like that after a few prints also, I clean mine with alcohol and a soft cloth yet it always gets cloudy and scratched very quickly.  I suspect this is normal, I'd say as long as it's printing well not to worry about it.

Mine looks slightly worse than that but still prints nice, plan is to change mine when i start getting unexplained failsSmile
