Full screen layer mid print

Post#1 » Wed Mar 15, 2017 4:50 am

Hello All,

I've been having some trouble getting prints on my new B9 Creator. I seemed to only get the supports and some of the layers.

Today I decided to stay with the printer and watch it print for a while. At about layer 230-250 it decided to start Flashing full screen White light :o

Which was my cue to cancel the print and meant that there is an underlying issue here. I am using a brand new W10 machine, Connected through HDMI.

Any thoughts on what might be happing? At first I thought it was to do with supports and layer thickness, but what happened just now was odd. The print preview was not showing those "full screen" layers.

Did u preview the layers to make sure u had no missing ones or full build area layers that would cause these projected ones. Have u had successful prints before this?

When u say full screen white light, do you mean projecting layers covering the entire build area? I have seen CAD models with phantom layers before. If using matrix shade using "plastic" may help u check for these.

Email your model (.stl or 3dm if matrix) prefer the 3dm so I can check it. How many hrs on your machine. Assume u have the v1.2 HD.

The solid is Fairly simple (a sphere) I was just testing the Printer as I am not getting any print ATM. The Cuts look fine, and there are no Images which cover the full bed anyway. it literally printed Rectangles the size of the print area.
