Print troubleshooting

        Print not sticking to the buildplate 

        • Increase the initial layer time
        • Level the buildplate
        • If neither work, sand the buildplate to increase the adhesion

        Print warping on the buildplate

        • Level the buildplate
        • Increase the initial layer time for large prints
        • Use supports instead of printing large flat objects directly on the buildplate especially on edges

        Print features not coming

        • Check FEP sheet for cloudiness/scratches 
        • Increase the print time for each layer
        • Check the sliced images on the slicer- might be a file issue- tally with model

        Print warping after removal from printer

        • Don’t remove supports until after post UV curing

        Print sticky after post UV curing

        • Use ultrasonic cleaner with a mixture of clean water and liquid soap
        • Clean with IPA/Acetone

        Some parts on a full buildplate fail

        • Increase the initial layer time
        • Increase the lift height between layers of the printer with a full and heavy buildplate

        Initial layers printing but remaining layers not printing

        • Increase the exposure time for the remaining layers
        • Decrease the exposure time for the initial layers (difference in curing time between the initial and remaining layers shouldn’t be too high)
        • If your slicer allows it, create a gradient in print time between initial layers and remaining layers (eg. layer 1 30 seconds, layer 2 25 seconds, layer 3 20 seconds and so on)

        Supports not sticking to the part

        • Increase the tip diameter of the support (where it is touching the part)
        • Brace the supports to each other (tree type of support structure)

        FORM3D Chemicals Private Limited is established in the year 2022 with a resin plant to manufacture photosensitive resins which are compatible with most light based 3D printers (SLA, DLP, LCD etc). We have a range of resins with different properties for specific end uses and are constantly innovating to increase our offerings.Our resins are colourless and we offer compatible pigments with our resins so that our customers can create their own resin colours for small printing batches.
