What's Wrong with My 3D Print?
At first glance, it seems as if nothing has been printed out even though you’ve set everything up according to Phrozen’s official , sliced the file nicely in a . BUT the 3D model still fails to adhere to the build plate, and instead sticks onto the FEP film.
What Caused the Issue?
When a 3D model fails to stick to the build plate and falls into the resin vat, it’s typically an adhesion issue. There are a number of reasons this may have happened. When this happens, it means that the suction force between the 3D model and the FEP film is a lot stronger than the suction force between the build plate and the 3D model, which is why the 3D model fails to stay on the build plate and instead falls into the vat.
There are several factors that may have caused the adhesion issue. This can be classed into four main categories:
- Configurations on CHITUBOX aren’t correct.
- The build plate’s surface is too smooth.
- The build plate is not leveled properly.
- The environment.

Troubleshooting the Issue
2. Increase the curing time of the bottom layer to strengthen the adhesion between the model and the build plate. If you are trying to print a larger model or print at full plate, we recommend you increase the bottom layer exposure time by 20%.
3. Lower the lifting-speed to below 40mm/min.
5. Remove the platform and polish the platform with 80 grit sandpaper. Sanding the surface can help to strengthen adhesion between the 3D model and the build plate. After polishing, use your fingertips to check the surface roughness of the build plate. Please refer to as an example.
If you're still facing adhesion issues, please fill out the following form; our engineering team will get back to you as soon as possible.
2. Light-off delay time is essential in resin 3D printing. With the correct settings, each layer will be printed in a much more stable manner, resulting in a better quality 3D print. Please refer to to learn more about light-off delay.
