No prints on build table

Hi everyone,

i have just purchased the form 1+ to trial while we look at buying several form 2, BUT i cant seem to get any prints to stick to the build table :frowning:

Please help, ive tried the fine tuning at -0.1 / -0.2 / -0.3 / -0.4 / -0.5 / -0.6 and neither seem to help

There can be a few different causes for this and thanks for doing a bit of troubleshooting by iterating with Z fine tuning! Are you noticing that resin is sticking to the PDMS on the tank rather than the platform? There are a few additional steps we might try and if those don’t seem to correct things, I’ll make sure to get you in touch with a member of our support team to troubleshoot further.

thanks for the reply,

each build is stuck to the bottom of the tank.


Most often, we do see this as related to the Z offset of the printer and we recommend iterating downwards with Z fine tuning until you’ve hit 1mm or so. It’s also important to make sure that the tank isn’t excessively clouded as this can affect adhesion to the build platform as well.

its a brand new machine, tank and resin.

when i look at the tank with resin in it, its lower on the left hand side, is this normal? i can just about get the base layer to stick to the platform on the left, it wont print a full model but a get something rather than nothing.

If you’re noticing misalignment of the tank, it’s best to work with our support team to get this corrected. I’ve reached out to our team and one of our members will be in touch with you over email to help troubleshoot.

thanks, the help is needed
