    After-Sales Service & Warranty Certificate
    Please view our Warranty Certificate to find your 3D printer’s serial number, in case the 3D printer (or parts of the 3D printer) are found to be damaged or not functioning properly. We also provide you with a QR code to our 3D printing tutorials and Phrozen’s Warranty Policy.

    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.

    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.

    To start your device, you will need to connect the adapter to your Sonic Mini 8K.

    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.

    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.

    Sonic Mini 8K only supports USB drive file transfer. The USB is used to store your 3D printing file. Plug it into your LCD 3D printer and you’re good to go.
