Told support right away once we saw what could happen.
The machine does in fact detect wiper detachment (as we later tried), so if its fully detached and not detected at the end of the tank I’m pretty sure it would have stopped before even lowering the build plate.
However, the issue in this case was that the wiper was not entirely detached, but partially so. Since the wiper does NOT touch the sides (where the detection happens) once it starts lowering the build plate, what happened here is that the wrinkles were so big it basically pushed one side of the wiper off and up towards the build plate as the wiper was returning from the final wiping run (barely visible under the resin)
Since there’s not much clearance between where the wiper is parking and where the build plate is, that bit of difference had a little part of the wiper under the build plate…and it looked like it could have been quite the disaster. (Maybe it would have floated away with the resin as the plate came down, or maybe it would have done another detection cycle at the end, but based on how immediate the build plate typically gets shoved down after the final wiping run…that wasn’t something we were ready to find out)
Definitely reminded me of the my previous form 2 disasters where the machine pressed detached parts on through the tank, unglued the tank bottom, and coated the entire optical window…
