U have to realize that a partially cured layer that is only 30 or 25 microns thick will droop or sag when not supported. This is the reason an angled print doesn't require as many supports. 40 to 45 degrees will suffice.
See the support system I use for horizontally printed bands. These were done in my CAD program. The foundation "ring" is 0.50 mm thick.

Unless this was done on purpose...As it is, your parts won't come out correctly
Robert, can you corroborate?
Robert Howle wrote:Z home offset should be 10400 like Daniel says. If u have missing elements in the print prob due to an area that has over hang and needed a support. Also could be a missing part in the CAD file. U can review the slices in "Print preview" slice by slice to look for missing area of the print.
Doesnt' really make sense that only one of the geometric shapes did not print since there are multiple shapes in that same plane that are identical.
What does your calibration print using the yellow resin look like. That would really help.

The Z 10800 or 10400 is only relative to you build table adjustment. If your build table is set to 10800 as mine is it makes no difference. If you want to set the Z to 10400 (stock) you can do that but you need to a build table calibration. If you don't do a build table calibration after changing to 10400 your build table will be 400 about the pdms and your parts will not stick.
