Hi all, I was one of the first to pre-order the moai 200, and the early versions came with the standard glass plate with just fep over that. I later ordered the advanced PDMS plate and installed that, had nothing but issues with that, switched back to the glass plate and FEP. I’ve now bought a second advanced PDMS plate, because the first one started to have resin creep under the cushion / FEP layer under the FEP Sheet.
I’ve installed the pdms plate and added a new FEP Sheet over top…later to find out that after adding a whole bottle of resin, it has leaked into the bottom chamber. It seems the acrylic spacer stretched the FEP sheet so much that it tore where it meets the aluminum frame. It puts tremendous pressure on the sheet to the point where I have to apply way too much torque to the screws to get the metal plate to lay flat.
I need to know what’s the thickness of the acrylic spacer square? Mine is 5.5mm to 5.7mm
Here’s a couple of pictures showing how high the spacer is before I put the last metal plate on.
Seems way too high for me, I’ve already ruined a brand new FEP sheet because of this, and I’m not stretching the film tight when i’m installing, it actually has a good bit of slack in the sheet before I place the advanced pdms plate on.
