Hello, I hav a formlabs 1 printer, and I’m trying to print a Millennium Falcon model.
(Model can be seen in picture one and two - download link below ) (scaled to about 7cm).
I don’t have pictures of the file in the Form Labs program but I angled it with the magic tool and had supports, I also added some so there were no red areas anymore.
Conditions, cautions and possible mistakes :
I let every attempt run for way longer then the displayed time sometimes over night and sometimes during the day, and I didn’t interfere with the Pc that was connected thought the process and I didn’t touch the printer. And I checked that there was always enough resin in the tank. And I obviously cleaned the build platform between the tests, using alcohol and wipes to remove any resin. ( I am very sure that there were no power outages )
And the printer / Pc never printed any errors.
As you can see in the pictures the result doesn’t look very good.
First attempt I used a brand new Tank and freshly refilled it with clear resin ( don’t remember the resin version ) ( result can be seen in picture 3) - only the supports were printed.
The next attempt that can be seen in Picture 4 - 5 -6 during the second attempt i newly refilled the tank with green V3 Resin. The result was better then the first, and the Part of the model that was printed is fairly detailed as you would expect looking at the model, but then the printing seemed to have stopped. ( Supports weren’t bent wen I took it out that must have happened afterward,
The third attempt Pictures 7-8-9 with the same conditions as the second attempt can be seen in the last picture. I can clearly be seen that the printer continued printing the layers of the supports, but didn’t really print the model.
( During the last attempt the printer was stopped as I discovered this. )
Finally some pictures of the printer - looks all good to me but maybe you spot something
Thanks so much for your help.
