This evening, I had a part completely fail–only the base was printed but nothing else. So I scraped the partially formed base from the platform and fished out some blobs from the tank and tried again.
This time I checked on the part about 90 minutes into printing (about half done,) and I noticed that the laser was not working. The printer, however, continued ‘printing’ as if everything was normal. I cancelled the print and found that once again I had only a partially formed base.
Any ideas what could be happening? The printer worked perfectly the last time I used it, which was two days ago.
Thanks in advance for any helpful advice.
Right now I’m about to try again. I unplugged the printer, topped off the resin, and I’m going to try a new file (in case my previous file was corrupt.)
