I am in the middle of a printing sprint of large parts with tough resin, and my “Tough V4” cartridge is nearly empty.
I put in a new cartridge to be sure that the print will not be interrupted because this would probably screw up my print ; tough resin warps like hell.
But I realised the new cartridge is “Tough V5”, and the Form 2 will not let me use it.
I checked on the “Master list” and read that V5 is just a change of supplier and that the resins are mixable.
So here is my question :
Why does Formlabs make my life more difficult for no reason ?
Now I need to remain close to the printer (this is a 15 hour print) until I get the dreaded “low resin” message that I will override so that the print is not interrupted, hoping and praying that the remaining resin will be enough to finish my precious part.
One buys an official 260€ goddamn resin cartridge and still has to hustle and wrestle to get the job done, like in “Open” mode
This is just plain silly and annoying
