    just got this one. not great so far. half the prints are failing. hopefully these are just kinks that can be worked out.

    machine is compact, looks good, looks to be high build quality. software is excellent. even has stacking feature, though that part's not intuitive at all. open system, and has a lot of resins that are pre-tested and configured already. it has a really nonsensical resin tray system. you can't use trays until they're worn out, you have to replace them after a certain amount of use, depending on how much you paid for it. basically amounts to licensing fees. you have to throw out perfectly fine trays, and if trays die early you have to save the rfid tag to use on other trays. colossally stupid, if you ask me.
    the tray bottom seems to be nothing but a layer of silicone. it's not very durable and it didn't take much to put a hole in it.

    still early. will need to revisit later. so far, mixed results.

    Been using Asiga MAX printer for a while now and never had a failed print, only once when i didn't mix resin. Tray bottom is silicone yes but you don't need to touch it and i never had hole in it.

    Sorry for double post just now i thought maybe some of you guys have ever tried different resins for Asiga MAX printer? I mean not the original resins by Asiga which are quite expensive to be honest, but i saw cheaper resins from other manufacturers, i know ASIGA is open printer and it is possible to use any resin with is compatible with that kind of printers, so i wonder maybe anybody tried it in reality and how it worked out

    still getting failed prints. we're having so many problems with this, compared to our other printers. only the formlabs was worse, and we got rid of those. also, the support experience is terrible. email only. and if that's not bad enough, it's on a day's delay due to time difference.

    how exactly prints fail ? what happens ? you sure you put enough supports and dont expose resin to sunlight and mix it really well before printing ?

    some come out warped, some incomplete. same supports. of course they're mixed well and not exposed to sunlight. we have no trouble with other printers we have.

    This is definitely not the norm. I’ve had zero problems with my Max UV. I see you’re in Canada, how was your printer shipped? I know Whipmix will not ship printers UPS anymore (to many damaged printers).

    hello guys ,
    well for the first 3 months i had zero problems with my Asiga Max ,very precise excellent jobs . but sins a while my prints are perfects as precision but i have to clean the tray every single use , cause some small particules are in the resine ! I mix my resines befor using it i protect it from light very carefully etc but still having this problem . beside this i have a shadow under the construtions of about 2 mm around the base i m posting some pictures , did anybody have this kind of problem? how could be solve?! I m using super cast V3 for partials
    any suggestion is apreciated !

    why so much base plate thickness? I attach parameters that i use and dont have this kind of problem. However you have to wipe the build tray with izopropil alcohol after every print that is normal

    I'm not sure what changed, but after our initial run of problems, it's been running well ever since. We're not doing anything differently, so no idea what happened.

    I looked at the Photocentric models whats the problem they look great even the resin is good for producing just a few models a week what is the resolution you need for accuracy

    Hello everyone, I've recently encountered a very annoying problem with my Asiga Max printer which I've been unable to find a solution to. For some reason, more than half of the projects I try to print fail and I get the message "Approach Failed", and this always happens between slice 1 to 20. Sometimes I don't get this message but my works don't get printed completely. This only happens when I use Asiga Cast UV ver:3.2. I also use Detax Freeprint temp uv ver:3.2 in another container and I've never had any problems with it so far. I have tried many ways to fix this, I have recalibrated it, cleaned the material of any debris, and used the LED and discarded a tiny sheet of material from the bottom of the container (this one I have done several times). I always use isopropyl alcohol to clean the building platform and the glass and I'm sure there isn't any hole in the container. I tried Increasing the thickness of the supports, as I was told it would work, but it didn't. I'm out of Ideas, and I'm thinking of replacing the container with a new one. I would really be thankful if anyone could guide me or give me a solution for this issue. Thanks in advance.
