I’m new to a form 2 - and have watched formlabs videos etc - but have a small model (2.5 ml of resin or so) and have had a 50/50 fail / success ratio in the my first 6 prints or so.
If I let preform apply default “auto” orientation And supports - I get fat supports everywhere it seems - that are a nightmare to remove later.
I have experimented reducing the density - and the touch Point size - but realise I have no good heuristics for optimising the supports- or for understanding a failure of a print - which set of characteristics I should “increase” before having another go. …
When should I go for larger touch pint size ? Higher density ? Etc.
Most things I’ve read so far end up unhelpfully saying something like “with experience you’ll know where you need supports, and can do with less than the computer suggests” . Ok … but how do I short circuit wasting lots of failed prints - to gain that experience ?
Are there any good resources out there discussing this in some depth ? Could anyone share some links ?
In particular anything that helps with guaging the spacing that will work, and touch point size … and indeed presumably the trade offs In those vs orientation.
(So far my failures have been odd localised bits in the model not coming out right l, or a block of semi hard gunge attached to the tank (I’m using an Lt tank, and tough 1500 resin).
Thanks hive mind !
