Added a flex plate to photon - prints are shifting

Please Login to Comment

hi, has anybody else experice with adding a flex magnetic build plate to the Photon? I did this because sometimes the prints are so stuck to the plate. Now my prints are shfiting, any advice on this behavior? Thanks!

get some PTFE lubricant and lubricate the FEP sheet on the inside of the vat so the print doesn't stick to it. reapply every time you clean it from removing resin from the vat, similar to https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J25JDDY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Do you have a cheap magnet from China? I myself recently put a flexible plate on the Mono X and have no problems there. It really takes some strength to loosen or straighten the steel plate. and for the small Buildplate of the Photon it must be a rly bad magnet if it shifts
