Hello good day.
After having bad experience in the repair of my Form1 + and the lack of spare parts by FormLabs I decided to buy Formlabs 2.
It turns out that I have an open ticket to the name of Adrian … I’m again with replacements of formLabs2.
-First Printer Form2 Purchased and Replaced: After 46 hours of printing my pieces did not finish correct, I made falls of the finest parts. The supports always correct but my pieces a Chaos.
-Second Printer Form2 Received
same mistake but this time only at 27 hours.
It must be said that I am an experienced FormLabs user:
-I cleaned my glass with PedPAd & IPA.
-Changed my resin tank when necessary.
-Change or filter my resin when necessary.
Clearly the error is in the printers, my tank and resin have been taken to my friend’s house with Form2 and all success.
FormLabs tells me:
Do not worry, we’ll send you another printer again … but … is this normal? I have this way (2 und of Form1 +) and (2 und of Form2) I am the burner of lasers or printers Form?
I’m even asking the support to give me a technical diagnosis, I’m a technician.
I’m asking FormLabs if I’m doing something else myself or my environment is not suitable … they answer … that FormLabs does not affect anything external.
But I think 2 faulty Formlab printers followed? It’s all very strange.
Since they do not answer if there is an external agent, I ask:
-Is it possible that my electrical current makes failures in the FormLabs? My current is 220v AC Spain, the first that happened was directly to the electrical network the second was in a UPS (protected). (This is impossible, I think that the power supply of the FormLabs are very good, they rectify and purify the current)
- Is it possible that these failures can be generated by external magnetic agents? It’s crazy but I’m desperate, to say that in the same room I have more electrical equipment such as Prusa printers, other FDM.
Understanding my situation, the third Form2 printer is on its way … it’s crazy …
I print technical cube parts emptied with impressions from 16 hours to 0.025mm from Z.
The Preform has been sent to FormLabs along with the machine name, DashBoard report … and they say new printer … but I am very unhappy with the situation and fear that it may happen again.
Do you think I should take some precautionary measure? I think everything I do well always my last preform and latest firmware.
I also think that if I were the cause of the breakdowns, Formlabs2 is badly designed … but I do not understand it. I know people who do not have any problems.
I think that my Formlabs 2 send a lot of power or voltage to the laser and it ends up burning it.
Degrading and expanding the point.
Clear Standar V4. According to Formlabs the resin is correct according to the reference number.
What do you think according to your experiences ?.
As it happens again I will make a formal claim and return my money. (I no longer dedicate myself to 3D SLA printing) I lost all my clients thanks to the wonderful FormLabs
