Exaggerated features on half of model.

Post#1 » Sat Oct 25, 2014 4:09 am

Getting a strange problem, half of my model (the half closest to the build table) is coming out with exaggerated features while the other half more closely resembles what it should. Running the v1.2, 30xy with pure cherry at default settings. These were sliced at 50z but I have had the same results at 30z. I'm stumped as to what's causing it and any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

Did u assemble the machine or was it done by the factory? I would print this piece vertically. What resin? What settings (default or other)?

Whoah!? If that's pure cherry you have some serious shaking in your future. Start there. It shouldn't be that translucent

That very bad z axis bleed. Not sure what resin that is, but there's not enough control of depth of cure.

If it's really Cherry, then all your pigment is sitting at the bottom of the bottle.

This is why many folks have issues with Cherry. It will print fine at first if not completely mixed, but later, if you mix well, the extra pigment will be so concentrated that you won't be able to cure deep enough to stick to the build table.

Noticed that translucence but did not mention. Not shaking makes sense.
