 To help model separate from the PDMS layer, Moai tilts the vat on the right side of the print after each layer finishes to peel the object off the PDMS (silicone). During this process, the build plate also moves down slightly to counter the peel force. This tilting action helps with better print results, but sometimes the peel force can distort or damage the print object. To help model separate from the PDMS layer, Moai tilts the vat on the right side of the print after each layer finishes to peel the object off the PDMS (silicone).

 To modify peel force, you can make it peel slower by lowering PM Motor Speed and Z Motor Speed or reduce the distance of tilt by reducing PM Reset Position. The definition of those settings as well as other settings can be found in the [[moai:​moai#​settings|menu settings page]]. There is no hard and fast rule for setting these. As long as Z Motor Speed is less than 30% of PM Motor Speed, the tilt action is fine. It is also best to have PM Reset Position greater than or equal to Z Follow values. To modify peel force, you can make it peel slower by lowering PM Motor Speed and Z Motor Speed or reduce the distance of tilt by reducing PM Reset Position.
