I’m hoping to get a reply from someone from Peopoly, because the problems I am having with my Moai 130 (firmware “SLA-125 V1.18”) are causing a lot of frustration.
Here I have a potentially great machine and the investment over time in the machine, resin, spare parts, alcohol and additional tools has been well over 2000 euros.
- often it won’t read an SD card at all: “No SD card”
- or shows a folder name from memory, but when you try to step into it, no files are actually found there
- or it starts to print a file, but then the laser stays off and all it does is uselessly move the vat up and down
- or you select one file and it starts printing another
I have installed the replacement SD-card reader-board which I received from the dealer in Poland, after I repaired the original one after the well-known solder failure. But now both are appearing to give problems. Or is the problem now in the controller?
And in general: what’s up with the instructions to regularly format the card, turning the machine off and on between prints, and never replacing a file on the card but only adding them. This sounds like a serious problem in the operating system / file system manager that should have been resolved quickly after the launch of the machine years ago -either with new firmware or by sending out controller-board replacement-. Has something been done about this in the meantime that I don’t know about?
Considering that it’s unlikely that the problem lies with the power supply, galvo drivers or display panel I am hoping that the manufacturer can send me a replacement controller board with SD-card board. Or would re-flashing the firmware have a chance of improving things?
Please help so that I can become a happy and proud user of the machine again!
