Can you print with one cartridge of resin?


#1

Hello,

Does anyone know if it is possible to run a job in the 3L if you only have one cartridge of a resin type instead of two? Preform is telling me I need another.

I can imagine that if you had an empty second tank you might be able to trick the machine into thinking it had 2 full cartridge but we actually have only one (Full) cartridge.

Thanks
Charles

You need to have both cartridges there.
I’ve tested just now to see if the latest firmware had changed anything but no:

I’ve printed a few with one of the cartridges empty BUT the printer reported it had some resin left so I’m unsure if an empty cartridge (that the printer reports to be empty) will work. I assume so because the release rate for each cartridge is slightly different and you always end up with one being emptied before the other but I can’t say for sure.
