Form3 Preheat?



March 18th firmware added preheat before mixing with real time temp monitoring
Discovered by chance… the firmware release notes are indeed terse…
But this is again good news!


Yes, I too noticed that change and was psyched to try it out. Except my machine, in an ambient of about 63ºF, cannot achieve the 33ºC starting temp required by Tough2000. I have to “preheat” my workshop for 30 minutes before attempting a print. And then, if I don’t want to wait another 30 minutes for the Form3 to heat the resin up, I have to put a cover over the machine.

My machine’s heater may not be working correctly.


It probably isn’t based on how my machine is able to preheat successfully in cold environments. :sweat_smile:
