Why do my resin prints keep failing?

Why do my resin prints keep failing?

There are many reasons that can cause the resin 3D prints to fail halfway. It can be caused because of the wrong exposure time, unbalanced build platform, not enough support, bad adhesion, wrong part orientation, and many more. Resin is Contaminated. LCD Optical Screen is Too Dirty.

Does resin melt PLA?

Epoxy resins are highly unfiled solid contents. They have the ability to seal porous and semi-porous PLA contents to achieve a remarkable strength. Usually, an increase in the melting temperatures of the resin contents leads to the resultant increase of the penetrative depth.

Why are my prints not sticking to the platform?

Nothing would stick to the platform. One day I realized, that all of the failed prints would always start to fall off to one side, and all of the successful prints were all misformed and kinda diagonal. The platform was not level.

What does raft silhouetting in 3D printing mean?

A print defect in which reduced space between the build platform and resin tank causes the initial layers to be very thin. “Raft silhouetting” describes a print defect in which the early layers adhere to the build platform, creating a silhouette of the raft or initial layers.

Why does my 3D printer keep sticking to the build plate?

For a bottom-up stererolithography 3D printer, the most common failure would be the adhesion problem which means that you only get support and raft structures on the build plate after 3D printing instead of the intended object. In this case you will see part of the model still sticking to build plate and part of it sticking to resin vat.

Why does my model keep sticking to the build plate?

In this case you will see part of the model still sticking to build plate and part of it sticking to resin vat. Though this experience is so frustrating, sometimes you even get nothing on the build plate and only raft/bottomsticking to resin vat.
