Brand new cartridge, brand new tank, brand new build plate. Form 3B.
Very first print with these components, I could not for the life of me get the parts/rafts off the build plate. I was able to twist off the parts, but the build plate has these parts welded on. I’ve spent two hours scraping, freezing, and soaking in IPA trying to get these parts off to no avail. Is this common with this resin? With labor costs, after about two hours worth of effort it would actually be cheaper to throw the build plate away after every print than to try to clean it. I’d obviously rather not, but time is money.
Perhaps a defect in the build plate? Fresh out of the box the rubber seal on the extruded aluminum plate had popped off and I had to put it on. Seems unrelated, but figured it was worth mentioning.
Also, I’ve had no issues with my previous build plate. Parts pop off with ease, but I don’t want to contaminate the bio resin with a build plate that has been used on non bio material.
