Is anyone else experiencing very slow filling of the vat on their Form 3? We just got ours and it seems incredibly slow. I don’t remember our Form 2 filling this slow. It took around 3-4 hours for the initial filling of the vat and every new print drags on and on whenever the vat needs more resin. It appears to be a very thin trickle when dispensing. Doing a print right now and it’s been filling for the last 45 minutes.
Is this normal? Anyone else having this issue?
I’ve inspected the bite valve and it doesn’t appear to be any different from any other cartridge we’ve used.
Also, our last print finished a bit after closing time so it stayed dripping excess resin all night. However, the next morning, there was still a significant amount of excess resin pooled around the rafts and more than usual still on the platform. We’ve had our Form 2 for 2 years and never had so much wasted resin after a print.
We’ve only done a few prints on this machine but so far I’m not impressed. The Form 2 seems to perform better (until it failed badly a couple of weeks ago, thus the need for the Form 3). Really hoping there’s something that can be done to improve this machine because it’s been very disappointing thus far.
