So - I’m printing a very nice LCVP about 11 cm long. Great file which I ‘waterlined’ and created stronger interiors for to be used for wargaming.
My first print, as the bottom is dead flat, was right on the print bed. I put it on a small base as part of the waterlining process. Comes out super nice. Great detail. A bit hard to get off the print bed but I expected that.
2nd one breaks getting it off the print bed - so okay - I will stop being stingy with resin and just use a support raft.
Put the model on support rafts. Set it up to print and - poof. It vanishes. Great support raft and the front drop door printed, but no boat. Supports go up to nothing.
Any thoughts on this? It seems like something in PreForm I expect. My current decision is to thicken the base and bevel it (effectively making it a support raft) so I can pry the model off and it will have more strength. But it would be nice to know why the models just vanished when I tried to print them.
