Printer won’t print anything except for the peoploly test ring!


#1

I received my printer, and have not been able to print a single thing except for the Peopoly test tree ring. I have run all tests…three or four times, and still can’t get it to print. HELP!


#2

When peopoly reply they will just ask for the following information. So if you can give that now it will speed things up:

Room temperature (best to be >25C):

What type of resin:

Build plate type: (Standard 1-piece / easy to level)

Vat: (Silicon vat / FEP vat)

What type Vat: (Peopoly Original vat, Recoated Peopoly vat, custom vat made by user)

Leveling measurement:

A, B, C, D (example 10.9mm)

Firmware version:

System Setting is default per Peopoly recommendation? (Yes/No)

Laser Power:

Z-reset position:

PM Motor Speed:

Z Follow Speed:

Software used to slice?

If using Asura,what version and profiles

If using Cura, what version and Profiles:

Infill %:

Also, images of the g-code you were attempting to print will help immensely. If you are able to print the test files, then you probably have a working printer. Remember: there is a steep learning curve getting going with SLA and experience with FDM or DLP printers does not always translate.


#4

if you can print the test files, that means it goes down to user error, fill in the form that @JackyBoy posted, it would be easier to solve the problem


#5

You don’t describe the failure - did it kind print, or did it do not much of anything? If you’re on a Mac, and slicing with Cura you’ll need to remove extraneous carriage returns from ends of lines. I use the unix2dos command since I’m often batch processing files, but there are instructions in the Wiki for doing it within Cura. That’s a common problem that usually results in no print.


#6

usually, this type of error is due to gcode slicing. usually OSX user who did not fix the end of line character issue or using the wrong slice/profile
