I made some changes to my print settings and boggled things immensely. Suddenly, my prints stuck to the wrong surfaces, and nothing came out correctly. A couple of times, I had to pry models off the transparent plastic sheet covering the screen, and I may have warped it with the prying.

 When I removed and emptied the tray, I saw some distortion but no noticeable ripples. The replacement procedure involved over thirty machine screws, but the result looked clean.

While I worked on the tray, I ran the resin through a coffee filter. I will only use the strainer for the printer, never food.

I changed my print settings back, and my next print came out nicely. When I tried to push the keycap onto the switch, it wouldn't fit, and I noticed that the resin pooled at the top. My cleaning method was to take fresh prints and shake them in a container with rubbing alcohol. I will need a better technique.
