I am a fairly new user of the Phenom L and was hoping to get some feedback on some problems with different resins. I have only tried Siraya products so far, and with Simple I have almost 100% success rate, though with Sculpt and Blu I have had zero success, about five failures with Sculpt and now two more with Blu.
Steps I have tried: heating the room, leveling countless times, changing FEP film, pre-warming the resin, and spreading a drop of lubricant on the FEP sheet as some people on youtube have had success with.
I’m attaching photos of the latest test print failure. Most of the cubes stuck to the FEP and the ones that did print were especially brittle compared to the same printed in Siraya Simple. For this I used the Blu settings profile that came with the other Peopoly profiles for Chitubox.
For leveling, is it best to level with or without the vat in place? I have seen tutorials doing it both ways. For this latest test I leveled without the vat and raised it 0.1mm before zeroing.
Are there any signals to look for if the build plate is zeroed too high or too low?
