Part detached from build platform - does the print of the part continue?


#1

I used a Formlabs printer for the first time. It’s a Form 3 with Elastic resin.

I have printed 6 small parts at once. One of those parts detached from the build platform halfway during the printing time. The print finished though.

What I’m wondering. Does the Formlabs printer recognise, that one part is missing or will he illuminate the resin and leave free flowing residue in the resin?

If there’s residue I can’t see it, because the cured resin is transparent as the uncured resin.

The printer will just continue printing until it’s one big mess in the printer.
Sometimes the wiper can detect it and stops the print.
