Does a 3D printer need to sit on a level surface?

the level of the surface the printer sits on makes no difference to the print quality. i think you could even lay it on it’s side and it would still print.

Why do 3D printers need to be leveled?

One of the most important things to check before starting a print is that the bed is level. An unlevel bed means that the distance between the nozzle and the build plate changes at different points and can result in problems with print adhesion and the quality of the first layer.

Do you have to level bed every print?

You can get away with leveling the bed every 5-10 prints depending on how stable the bed is and how careful you are when removing the finished prints from the surface. In order to stay on the safe side, it is advisable to level the bed before a large print (15 hours or longer) to ensure that it doesn’t fail mid-print.

Is auto leveling 3D printer important?

Automatic print bed leveling makes it easy to adjust the build surface for 3D printing without having to reconfigure the entire printer. You benefit from a high-precision print result, which can be achieved regardless of uneven heating or a possibly curved building board.

How many bottom layers resin?

Although there are some 3D printing users that like to go up to 10 bottom layers, 4 to 8 is the ideal count for most of the 3D printers including Photon.

Why do angles resin print?

The simple answer to why resin prints are angled is that tilting reduces peel force and reduces layer lines on the model. Although this might increase printing time and the number of supports the model uses, it vastly improves the print’s success rate and surface finish.

How close should a 3D printer nozzle be to the bed?

Your 3D printer nozzle leveling gap should be between 0.06 – 0.2mm from your printer bed to give it enough space to comfortably extrude material, which is about the width of a piece of paper. This distance also does depend on your nozzle diameter and layer height.
