Elegoo 3d print help
« on: September 29, 2020, 04:58:26 PM »
Hi any guruís out there that can help.
I have brought a Mars Pro and when I print only the supports print with nothing attached to them? Anyone got any ideas please.
I have tried levelling the bed multiple times but it doesnít help.
Thanks

So......print holo figures with thick supports and 55 second base layer curing. Then firmly cross your fingers and pray to the print gods.
I got one successful print and now trying a second.

Try lowering your lift speed - if you show your slicer settings and supports it might be possible to see better what the issue might be.

Thanks for the reply. Touch wood it seems to be working with holo prints. I shall keep my fingers crossed.

Yep I would always recommend hollowing all but the smallest of models. It sounds like what's happened is that the suction forces have pulled the model away from the contact points. Reducing the lift speed has a similar effect - do both and you can go with surprising thin supports and hairlike detail. This is 1/144 scale and I've boosted the detail to allow for safer handling when gaming, but I think this shows what you can achieve - you can actually go finer than this.

That looks great. I will try your suggestion next. I am using thick supports which are a pain to remove. Having said that it is nice to get a finished print after all the fails. Thanks for the tips I appreciate them.
