I’m trying to print a medallion with text and a logo in reverse to be used to imprint clay. My model is oriented with the edge attached to the build plate. The first layer that I measured off of a failed print is 3cm x 1cm and I don’t have any base layer.
The first time, layer 1 had exposure time of 60 seconds. The remaining layers until it dropped at layer 30 had an exposure time of 30 seconds.
The second time, layers 1-10 had an exposure time of 90 seconds. The remaining layers until it dropped at had exposure time of 25 seconds. It dropped around 80 layers.
I read that the attachment layers should be 10x that of the other layers, so I was woefully short on both prints.
My current questions are:
Should I add a separate attachment layer before my model starts? Any suggestions on size for x & y, in comparison to the 3cm x 1cm layer 1 that did not stick? I’m printing at .2 mm, so how thick of separate attachment layer would you suggest?
Or, should I just try the print again, but make layers 1-10 have a 5 minute exposure time?
