Hi Scott! An update to the FTD deep black. I did what you said about turning the exposure way down to 0.8 seconds in the 1st and burn in layers; I also changed the first layer and burn-in layers to have 1.0 RPM separation speed… It worked! It doesn’t jam the tray during the first layer anymore. And the print detail is crisp, it is very good!
However, after 3 successful prints at 100 microns; and each print with only 258 layers or total of 774 layers in all 3 prints, I noticed that the NEW tray had very visible clouds/blurs. I’m new to the ember, but is this really the longevity of the PDMS?
Each print runs 31 minutes. Please note that I am also using a swiper. Technically, I just had 1 hour and 33 minutes of print using FTD deep black in a new tray, and it now has visible PDMS clouding. Ive been using madesolid vorex white in another tray, Ive had more than 20 print with it and until now, the PDMS is still clear.
I have also noticed that FTD is less viscous than madesolid vorex.
