Brand new FEP vat
Brand new Easy Level platform
Original moai. Used for about a year and has been sitting about a year until I made some room and get the new vat and platform.
Testing Elegoo resin
Firmware is 1.18
Settings are the ones recommend here with the exception of laser power which is set to 48 since its using an LCD resin
I leveled using the procedure here
I also went through the guide here.
Nothing really out of the ordinary. The circle test wasn’t perfect, but super close (I don’t it was perfect during the build either) I am chalking that up to an error in printing and/or cutting the page.
I then tried printing a baby Yoda stl using the latest Asura and the results can be found here
It looks like it started printing and then just stopped. There were a few scraps left in the FEP vat so it was drained/filtered back into the bottle and the vat was cleaned with Iso and fragments removed.
I then refilled the vat and tried printing the ring test thinking my gcode mught be an issue and the result os that nothing really printed. see here
Again, there were some fragments left in the vat but not what I would expect.
The vat has been filtered and cleaned again and I am on hold.
Is it an issue with the resin? (I am hoping not because things are tight and having a less expensive resin is helping me to use this thing.
Is it something else?
All help appreciated.
