      Sonic Mini 4K Toolbox

      The toolbox contains essential tools for setting up the Sonic Mini 4K as well as tools to maintain your device after you’ve finished printing

      *Important: Double-check to see whether everything is included in your toolbox. Make sure to understand how each tool is used before proceeding onto the next step.


      User Manual

      The user manual contains essential information for users to set up their Sonic Mini 4K. This includes the introduction of functions and capabilities of the device, keynotes before printing, and a step-by-step tutorial for setting up the LCD 3D printer. 


      Gloves
      Please avoid direct contact with resin. This includes any part of your body or clothing. We suggest wearing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) such as masks, goggles, and gloves while printing and using resin.


      Scraper Set

      The metal scraper is used for removing models from the building plate after printing. The plastic scraper is for cleaning the resin vat after printing or removing cured resin that is stuck on the FEP film or LCD screen.

      *Important: DO NOT use the metal scraper to remove cured resin stuck on the FEP film.


      Adapter

      To start your device, you will need to connect the adapter to your Sonic Mini 4K. The touch panel will light up after around 3 seconds. 


      Allen Wrench

      The Allen wrench included in the toolbox is intended for unscrewing and tightening the building plate while performing the Z-axis Calibration test.


      Feet Pads

      Before printing, add the feet pads onto your device. These work to reduce vibrations, adding more stability during the printing process. 


      Plastic Funnel

      The plastic funnel is used for filtering out the excess resin after printing. Simply place the plastic funnel on top of the resin bottle cap, then pour the resin back into the bottle


      USB
      Sonic Mini 4K only supports USB drive file transfer. The USB is used to store your 3D printing file. Plug it into your Sonic Mini 4K and you’re good to go. 


      Backup Screws

      The backup screws are intended for the building plate.
