I am having issues with layer separation and parts not printing. it all started with some parts not printing half way through so I run the corner pillar test to make sure the build plate was level but the right rear pillar would not print. so I went to a full build plate re-level with the paper test but I couldn’t get any of the pillars to print. I changed the film in the vat re-level again but still no joy, i just had a few round layers on the build plate and four blobs in the vat so I decided to purchase the easy build pate and PDMS vat.
I levelled the new build plate and vat as the instructions say and eventually I got four corner pillars printing within a range of 10.78 and 10.82. However when I try to print anything the parts are still failing. Sometimes I end up with a few layers stuck to the build plate and the rest in the vat or they print half way through and fail. these are all parts I have printed in the past so I know they should print, I even printed the test ring and as can be seen in the photos the supports have failed and the holes in the ring are filled.
i am using three different types of sd card one of which is a Kingston, I have checked the card reader and cannot see any dry or lose connections, the galvos all look clean. I have checked and rechecked the build plate and it gives the same readings each time although some do fail to print every so often. System is rebooted after each test with vat cleaned and resin filtered.
All the similar posts I have read has put the issue down to levelling but my pillars seem pretty level to me. I have tried altering the Z re-setup up and down by a few increments but still the same results
