We've all been there, failed print after failed print. I want to show you some simple improvements to nearly eliminate print failures from parts separating from the build platform.

I managed to modify the build platform on my DLP 3Dprinter to include a large array of closely spaced holes to not only allow resin to pass through the plate and thereby lowing the separation forces but to also allow resin to cure into the holes slightly and increase the adhesion of the part to the build platform.

There is definitely a lot of patience that goes into making a modification like this you can modify your printer and it'll look almost like a CNC mill did it.

I also created a handy tool to easily separate parts without needing a scraper, I'll go over how to create this tool in the video.

The third aspect of this improvement is an overview on creating custom rafts to print parts onto. Since many resins tend to warp and curl on long thin edges (especially on overcured areas) such as the rafts used to attach parts to a printer build plate, having a graduated raft helps to significantly reduce the chances of part separation due to warping on the edges of the raft.

If you made it this far through the video description then you probably had the patience to stick all the way through the video. I applaud your loyalty to my humble Youtube channel.
