Print Not Attaching To Build Platform

Postby Scmelis » Wed Aug 14, 2019 6:11 pm

Hello,
I've noticed that every once in a while on my prints (so not every time), the initial layers of my prints seem to not stick to the build platform. Instead, what happens is that the cured resin just sticks to the film immediately and every subsequent layer continues to be stuck there.

I'm curious if anyone else has encountered this problem? Also, are there any tips that I'm missing/forgetting for preparing/cleaning the build platform? Or should I just consider curing the initial layers for longer?

Thanks for any tips.

As I remember you had to adjust the tilt homing screw in order to complete the home cycles more reliably.

Did you re-calibrate the build platform after doing this?

Yes, I did recalibrate the build platform. Honestly, it only seems to happen every 1/5 times or so. I figure that it must be me not cleaning everything properly but I was curious if there were any other suggestions.

Lightly scuffing the aluminum build plate using sandpaper, and increasing the bottom layers exposure time slightly should help with that.
