Hi, first time form owner, just got my form3 and LOVE IT.
I’ve been testing different part orientations for various reasons. But lately I’ve been printing phone cases using the tough material, and it prints well when the part is oriented at an angle on all 3 axis. But it leaves a huge lattice structure that has to be painstakingly cut away. So I tried one print with the case standing straight up. It uses way less material, is faster, and way easier to clean up at the end.
However, it printed with this weird wrinkle in it, and I’m trying to understand why that is - and if there’s anyway to account for this. I read all about cupping that could cause this, but I really don’t think this part has that issue because its quite thin and only 3 sided.
I’m printing on full raft, and used auto-supports for the vertical print.
This is the print that came out well:
This is the same part, in the vertical orientation:
And here is a picture of the “wrinkle”:
I know there are several factors here, but just wondering if just fundamentally there is a reason why it can’t print like this.
Also, if anyone has any good pointers on removing supports, it would be much appreciated.
