My printer stayed on a shelf for some months because I was too busy at work to find time to print stuff.
My last print was good but after many months I have a hard time to print something, I cleaned the mirror like explained on the website. Not the small one since there no official tutorial
1/ new preform version seems to not work on my Form1 ( not a form1+).
I tried to raise the plateform since the base layers looked a little too thin.
-0.5 and -1 didn’t helped.
I am getting a more flat base with few support but most of them fail ( tried with a new resin tank and brand new resin…which the last failed print damaged the bottom of the resin tank by over printing the same area again and again…
2/ with preform 1.4 I tend to have more thicker base and one success but multiple fails.
I learned that grey resin after 6 months sitting in the bottle become very clear even after shaking.
and that leaving resin in the tank too long ( few months in the dark ) manage to damage the soft layer, it just detached from the resin tank…
It’s my 3rd printers and I was happy with the few prints when the last one was brand new but I have a hard time to understand why not using it make the printer not working properly.
getting the form1+ upgrade is maybe one solution but that 's a lot of money for still seeing lot of people having issues.
Anyone having issue with the preform 1.8 and the form1 ?
The new support structure looks better ( too bad I can’t export the file with support from the 1.8 as STL to reopen it in preform 1.4 …with netfabb exporting as stl should be possible.
I guess I will have to open a ticket to get some help…but I start to think I wasted a lot of time and money for something that works randomly
I am not happy
