Hoping to get some feedback on what’s wrong with my Moai. I was printing for the most part succesfully with it for close 7-8 months using the FEP system and adjustable/levelable build plate. I’ve only used the Peopoly gray resin up to this point.
Where the problems started: Purchased a new batch of Peopoly Black Resin from matterhacker (just wanted a different color, no particular reason). Hoping to improve on performance issues i have also downloaded and installed the latest firmware on the moai and downloaded the latest version of Asura to generate my gcodes (previously I was using Cura). Ran thru the calibration and leveling procedures as usual using the latest recommended values for the my system and firmware. This is where i started having print failures. I inspected my hardware and even ended up installing a new FEP film (old one was looking a little hazy). Since the updates and resin change i only had 2 successful prints (two very small ones) out of 14-15 attempts (multiple releveling in between). Based on the images attached what i am noticing it is the supports where the part is closest to the bed that are failing. this is the key problem and I am not 100% certain what is the cause since, I tried both with generating support in B9Rep manually and in Asura, double checking my leveling and ensuring the bed is clear of damage or debri. I have also tried positioning the part in different parts and orientations on the bed with very similar results. I after diving thru a lot of the support forums looking for similar issues I am running out of ideas to try. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know, I appreciate the community support!
PS: looking to pickup a peopoly phenom in the near future, but really want to get my moai up and running again.
(I will upload my settings later but i am using the exact values recommended by peopoly, tried adjusting the Z-height a bit between 1815-1820)
