Self-Support guide

How to get help

Most of the time spent on support is to get the right information from the user so we can verify the situation and provide help. To make sure you get the best and quickest help, we created this survey to get as much key information for printing as possible so that we can provide the correct solution and spot any issues you may have in your setup in addition to the issues you reported. Any photos of failed prints or issues, even if the failed object is still on the plate or in the vat, is very helpful.

Here is the official support survey guide.

Printing P1. What type of resin? Resin plays a big role in the printing success rate. Each resin has a different ability to withstand the peel force and stick to the build plate. While Phenom allows users to set custom exposure settings, many of the resins on the market are untested, so when in doubt or if you are new to resin printing, stick with Deft resin. Resins made for laser SLA or DLP printers are also unlikely to work for Phenom even if it is designed for 405nm light source. And lastly, many resins designed for small format LCD/MSLA printers released too much heat and can degrade LCD lifespan quicker than expected. —- 2. What software to slice and generate support? 3.
