Does anyone have tips on improving build plate adhesion in DLP printers? I've heard a thin layer of resin or UV glue applied to the plate will help, but we're not sure if we leave the resin/glue wet, or cure it before we start the print. Apologies for the ignorance here, but I'm just trying to avoid gluing my build plate to the bottom of the resin vat! Any advice would be appreciated.

Update I had a product called ProtoGlass recommended to me in another forum, that apparently works as a good build plate primer for the resin we're trying to grow (BlueCast x5). Ordering today, and I'll update further with the results.

  • $\begingroup$ How about roughening the plate (with very fine grit) so as to produce more surface area "grab"? I do not know whether this leads to other problems. $\endgroup$ – Carl Witthoft Jun 24 '19 at 14:55
