What changed from the very first FEP vats that shipped?


#1

Looking into purchasing someones FEP vat that they never used. It was the very first ones, but I know they changed something so I want to make sure I am not buying an obsolete version.
I cannot find the posts or info by searching.
I cannot recall if they just changed the film or if the actual parts changed also?

Also, has anything ever changed or updated with the easy level build plate, or are they all the same from the beginning until now?


#2

They changed their supplier of the FEP film. I don’t believe the vat design itself has changed.


#3

Someone else mentioned they added the vent holes in the acrylic piece. Anyone confirm the very first ones did not have this?


#4

I got one of the first ones, and mine did have slots in the acrylic plate. Those plates are available for order separately, and it’s not a bad idea to have a spare on hand for FEP tears.

The figure shown here: https://wiki.peopoly.net/doku.php?id=moai:fepvatbuild is of the vat design, and you can clearly see the slots in the plate.
