    Hi Noovi

    My UV light platform is 6 notches down.

    Does your machine work?

    @Jao, did you add the extra lines of GCode to the configuration? These turn the LED panels on and off.

    Hi Sukhvir. Lines of Gcode missing? Nope it's the first I hear of it. Makes a lot os sense.

    Are there instructions somewhere that I missed? Please tell me how to add the Gcode. I am a completely programming illiterate.

    This is super cool! It means I may get it working today!

    Hi Jao. It's in the videos that TOW should have sent. Go to Configure, then Configure Slicing Profile, click on GCode on the left hand side, then make sure your code s the same as in these photos.. Good luck.

    SUCCESS!!!!!

    I got my first print out!

    IMG_4464.JPG

    I used Sukhvir's suggested settings for the FTD resin and it came out cool, well after trying 4 times. The non printing areas on the screen also formed a layer
    on every try. The screen still bleeds UV light through and it's a real pain to clean in between. So I made a simple cardboard stencil to block it all out.

    IMG_4468.JPG

    My piece of film had a sticker on it that said "up" on the one side, so I installed it with the sticker side up. Well the sticker was on the wrong side and I almost destroyed
    the film trying to remove the first exposure test. Luckily it still works but it is a bit warped.

    Any idea where to get more? Or what kind of film it is?

    Thanks again for all your input Sukhvir and Bolson!

    Great news Jao and congratulations on your successful print. Firstly, your screen should not be bleeding any light - there must be some configuration issue. It could be that the mask is set to a grey colour, rather than black. In CW, go to File->Preferences, then look at the colour you have set for the background. The foreground should be white and the background should be black. If this doesn't work contact TOW, who should also be able to supply you with an extra film. Where do you stay?

    The cardboard cutout is going to cause an issue - it may be good for single prints, however you are creating a gap between the screen and the film, which is why I recommended removing the metal cover from the screen.
