Print tray pelling


#1

Did anyone else encountered a situation where’s the print tray black paint is cracked and peeling?


#2

You asking about the Resin Tray or the Build Plate?

@Walter_Gillespie Build Plate


#4

Never had an issue like that and I’m running two machines swapping out 4 build plates.

I didn’t think there was any paint on them. Thought it was all black plastic.


#5

Not only it is painted metal, it cracked and leaving paint fragments in the resin tray.


#6

Well, I’d contact FormLabs Tech on that.

Still, after 5 years of using these machines I have never seen this.

Maybe mine is defected. Thanks Walter

Yes, Submitted a ticket 2 weeks ago. They sent a replacement. I have a second one that is cracking and have not heard back on getting a replacement for that one. My is cracking where the 2 inserts are located. the rest of the build plate is pristine. The paint falls off in the resin causing failure. I should have asked about replacing some of the resin.

Thank you Jundie, good to know they are taking responsibility.

I don’t have a Form 2, but if the Form2 build plate is the same as the For 1, there’s nothing to “peel”, I mean it’s not painted, it’s injection molded in black plastic.

Not in the Form 2 case. It is metal and only the top (the connector) is plastic @Dudemeister
