I can pay (much) more for a better-built resin tank, as I probably need more than a dozen spares. I'd like to have at least threaded inserts, possibly sth like an old aluminum one (I can do with slightly longer print times). Self-threading screws are just BAD DESIGN - I expect more from Prusa.
i have been using the SL1S for few months the only thing i do not like is this resin tank. It can be done better. The process to change the vat is very difficult especially the screw is easily spoiled and i have to use other tools to remove the spoiled screw, after sometime the tank also damage in a certain way and cause a very minor leaking and i will need to buy a new one to replace it. i hope prusa would look into this issue and come out a better resin tank.
The tank is good and perfectly serviceable. Tank is very rigid and light weight. Buy some extras before you need them. However please note that this is not assembled and does not come with any spares. Not exactly the Prusa experience I'm used to getting. Would have at least assumed I would have gotten some extra screws, especially because of how easily the screws strip (the tank that came with my printer had several stripped screws, and I was unable to change the FEP). Would have loved atleast an extra FEP sheet as well, could have saved me an extra trip later and saved on some shipping cost/time. Just doesn't feel like things I've bought previously from Prusa. Especially considering how much you spend on the printer. Please also note that the FEP sheets are in the ACCESSORIES section, not the spares section.
