Print troubleshooting-

        1) Print not sticking to the buildplate 

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

        2) 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
        • If the slicer allows it, increase the number of transition layers

        3) Print features not coming

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

        4) Print warping after removal from printer

        • Don’t remove supports until after post UV curing

        5) Print sticky post UV curing

        • Use ultrasonic cleaner with a mixture of clean water and liquid soap
        • Clean with IPA/Acetone
        • Increase the time of UV curing

        6) 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
        • Level the buildplate

        7) 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 (transition layers) between initial layers and remaining layers (eg. layer 1- 30 seconds, layer 2- 25 seconds, layer 3- 20 seconds and so on)

        8) 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 was established in 2022. We develop and manufacture photosensitive resins for 3D printing, UV coating, and UV adhesive applications. Our 3D printing resins are compatible with most light based 3D printers (SLA, MSLA, DLP, LCD etc). We have a range of resins with different properties for specific end uses and are constantly innovating to increase our offerings. We have resins that are colourless and we offer compatible pigments with our resins so that our customers can create their own resin colours for small printing batches.
