The Fine Tuning option allows you to make adjustments to the height of the build platform. Fine Tuning is an advanced troubleshooting feature, for use only when there have been consistent, small-scale errors in your models’ adherence or dimensions. Fine Tuning can be accessed through the settings menu on the Form 2 touchscreen.
This setting changes the “zero height” between the build platform and the bottom of the resin tank. It can be adjusted to place the build platform either higher above the resin tank’s PDMS layer (“higher”), or closer to the PDMS layer (“lower”), by up to 1.0 mm, in increments of 0.1 mm at a time.
WHEN TO GO HIGHER
If you consistently get prints with very thin bases — and you’ve already tried increasing base height via the Advanced Support Settings — you’ll want to move the build platform away from the resin tank bottom. Raising the build platform gives the base more room to build. Move in increments of 0.1mm, and try small prints until you get printed models with consistent support rafts.
WHEN TO GO LOWER
If your models never stick to the build platform — despite double-checking the cleanliness of the Form 2’s resin tank and glass optical window — try moving the build platform closer to the resin tank’s bottom. Sometimes a little nudge is enough to make your models adhere and build correctly.
When to Contact Us
If your models are consistently the wrong dimensions, skewed by more than 5% in the X or Y direction, never adhere, or are severely displaced on the build platform, reset everything to default values and send us a support ticket!
