Hello everyone. So I am trying to get something printed out but I have no luck. I only bought tough clear resin (about 2 months ago so I guess it’s v2), have Fep Vat installed and easy level plate. I have leveled the plate following wiki instructions, let it drop down at z 1815, tighten screws while softly pressing plate towards vat, and then putting the the z back to 1816.
I did mess around with the screws beneath the vat while building (I thought the platform was not level, big mistake on my part), but realized my mistake further on and went back and leveled them using the pdms vat and old plate according to instructions and YouTube video. I tried printing the pegs with pdms and old plate, but just printed peg C once successfully, the rest just the thin layer on the plate.
I put back the easy level plate and Fep vap thinking it would be easier, but I get nothing at all when printing them. Z Reset position is at 1816. Vat seems free of any debris as well.
I do have the heater inside, with an average temp of 28 degrees.
My settings are the same as recommended:
Peopoly Tough Clear Resin
- X Size 900
- Y Size 900
- X Deviation 100
- Y Deviation 100
- Smooth 50
- Z Motor Speed 2
- PM Motor Speed 12 /latest change
- Laser Power 53 (only setting I changed from recommended on the site, because of tough resin)
- XY Speed Set 4
- Z Reset Position 1816 (this depends on how user level but normally 1815-1820
- PM Reset Position 60
- Z Follows 10
- CompensateX 100
- CompensateY 200
- Z Initial Speed 2
- PM Initial Speed 10
Should I test higher or lower Z Reset Positions? Or is it a problem with other settings? Or are there other things I should do?
Please help, I am going crazy!!
