I’ve been printing with the Form 3 for a year now, using only standard grey resin (V4). I’ve only had one failed print, and that was because I forgot to remove the prior print. Otherwise, I’ve had only success and great-quality parts.
I just bought a brand new tank and high-temp resin and gave it a try. My first five print attempts have all failed. It seems to print the base but fails each time, soon after it begins the supports.
For troubleshooting, I’ve tried:
-Different orientations, number of parts, and resolutions
-Different parts (including “Benchy” the 3D printing standard benchmark boat)
-Cleaning both sides of the optical window cover (though it already seemed very clean to me)
-Placing a box over the printer as a mock enclosure, in case the printer wasn’t maintaining temperature (it’s in a room around 68-72F)
I’ve been in contact with Formlabs support and they advised I clean the optical window cover, which I did. I can’t find a discussion about my issue online and I don’t know what else to try.
(I had a successful grey V4 print after several failed high-temp prints, so whatever the issue is it seems to only be related to the high-temp resin)
