Changes to Form 2 Initial Layers Laser Power?

Formlabs did a slew of tuning on their resin profiles after the Form 3 was released.

Does anyone know if changes over the last few years might have impacted the laser power for initial layers on the Form 2 (either intentional or incidental)?

I could swear I used to be able to achieve less “bleed” / “elephants foot” around the base of my part when printing direct on base, by adjusting the build platform higher. I don’t seem to be as successful lately at calibrating away that artifact, and my parts always either stick too much or don’t adhere at all (without the happy medium in between I used to remember).

Anyone else noticed this, or am I rosy-eyeing the past?

Go back to an older version of PreForm and possibly firmware that you felt was better and see if it makes a difference.
