Hi Formlabs Community,
I had a small print fail today. It didn’t stick to the build plate, and has left a layer stuck to the tank. You can see the picture below. I’m wondering how to clean the tank and what could have caused this?
Couple of things that could have contributed to this happening:
- It’s winter and my shop is cold 16C. The machine said it couldn’t reach temperature of 31C, but had reached 27C. I ignored the alert, and started the print. (I’ll be putting in a supplemental heater before the next print)
- The build plate had an old layer of resin on it, which I cleaned off with alcohol but maybe not a deep clean.
- Would that cause the print to not stick?
- How can I remove the layer from the tank film?
