Plate sliding while printing?
If your plate slides around during printing, this can be due to debris caught between the magnet and flex plate. Any debris will cause an imperfect seal between the two surfaces and allow resin to seep in, providing a great lubricant for the plate to slide on. Ensure that the flex plate and magnet are thoroughly cleaned between prints.
If your build plate is too close to the screen, detaching the part from the FEP sheet can be tough on the plate. When re-releving, use a sheet of FEP or printer paper between your build plate and screen to set the proper tension. You want to ensure that there is pressure on the paper, while still being able to pull it out from beneath the build plate.
If the previous steps did not help, try slowing down your Z lift. A rapid Z lift speeds puts extra pressure on the plate when detaching the part from the FEP and can shift the plate.
Adhesion Problems? Try this....
Make sure there is plenty of tension on the paper between the build plate and screen when printing. You should be able to barely pull it out. Also ensure that the plate is making even contact throughout the screen. To test this, slip a piece of printer paper under one corner at a time, the tension on the paper should be even. If not, try re-leveling. If re-leveling does not work, you may have a warped build platform.
Ensure that the flex plate gets washed after every print. A clean plate, free of debris, is critical for successful adhesion.
The Fula-Flex makes printing more convenient, but still needs proper resin settings to work. Ensure the resin settings in your slicer are calibrated correctly. Try increasing your base layer exposure time if you find that prints are having a hard time sticking.
