Tolerance calibration makes small adjustments to the exposure time of each layer of printing to fine-tune results. This may be necessary depending on your print environment, resin age, or other factors. If you are unsure whether you need to calibrate, reach out to our support team. Tolerance Calibration does not make any changes to how the first layers of your print adhere to the platform.
How To Calibrate
To access the calibration menu, make sure RayWare is connected to your printer and go to the top line menu PRINT>FINE TUNING.
In the Fine Tuning Menu, select the printer, resin, and layer height you would like to calibrate and confirm you would like to perform Tolerance Calibration.
For this test, your printer will print two rectangular blocks. Once finished, remove the blocks from your build platform. Clean and post-cure the blocks exactly as you would any other part printed with this resin.
Once your parts are cleaned and cured, gently slide them together. Record the number that the window reaches without forcing them together.
After the part is done printing RayWare will prompt you to input the score your test revealed. If you were disconnected during this process you can get to this screen by going back through the calibration menu and hitting "Skip" instead of "Print" on the last step.
Repeat this process until the slider rests on the 3.
Each time you select a number other than 3 and click apply your printer makes a relative change to it's previous settings. If you've made a total of three adjustments without improved results, reach out to our support team and stop printing calibration tests.
