So I fallowed the instructions for the EZ-Bed Plate in the PDMS vat. So first run yielded nothing for the DIY_Test Print. So the instructions state go back to step one. Am I to assume that I need to now empty the PDMS Vat and clean it out and start back at step 1. Or is it just as easy to take out some of the resin and push the plate down and try again?
Background Purchased Moai last spring and have yet to pass the leveling phase of this machine. I came close last fall after purchasing another Vat to eliminate possibilities. but to no luck. I’ve tried printing off calibration knobs instead of using the screwdriver… I’ve used the spreadsheet wich helped get me to 3 corners but the couple prints i tried failed… so I need all 4 corners to work. Seriously this machine is so damn finicky its unbelievable. I built a heated cabinet to keep it at 80 Degrees F. I keep at it with a few months in-between… But after purchasing the EZ-Plate I’m hoping this finely resolves potential issues that I just can’t nail. I’ve already waisted 1/2 liter of Clear Resin and 1 Litre of Neon Green Resin on test towers alone. I think If I can’t get this by the end of the month I will be giving up on this project. I have other hobbies that are more productive that waisting resin on a mountain failed test prints.
Not trying to sound like a pessimist but this printer has put my patients the ultimate test.
