Had my phenom 2 days now and have yet to get a successful print. I am using prima tough Abs like resin as the parts are mechanical. I have been printing this with 8 second layers in a photon but need to scale up our production hence the upgrade.
To start with I followed the instructions and tried the test print but only a few of the cubes stuck to the build plate. I then tried a few of my own parts Using the exposure I use on the photon of 5 base@ 50s then 8s per layer in the middle of the plate but nothing stuck to it. I tried at 10s and 12s. I checked the build plate with some paper and it seemed ok but I relevelled it anyway. Still nothing sticking. I removed the tape from the screen as there was a lot of overlap on it and seated it so it was really smooth and then relevelled. Each time I checked with paper all the way round. I’ve tried a few of the test cube prints now and each time just a few stick.
Between each I am using the fep clean file which pulls off nicely with all the failed cubes so I know the exposure for the base is long enough. I have even resorted to sanding the plate but they still don’t get any better than that.
I also checked the calibration image and it looks ok.
I was disappointed to see that I had the flat build plate in mine so I have ordered the sloped one, wondering if the new plate might fix it.
This is frustrating as I have been printing with a cheap photon and now with a 2 grand printer I can’t even manage a test print!
Any suggestions as to what I can try next? I’m about to change the fep to the spare but I can’t see that fixing it.
