I recently acquired a Anycubic Photon Zero and I'm having trouble printing anything that's not pre-loaded from that company.
I create my own models in Blender, put them through the Photon Workshop slicer software as well as download other models from the web for personal use and only the bottom or 1st layer will print! But anything that came pre-loaded as a demo from Anycubic prints fine.
Is there something I'm missing? What should I be checking for in the slicer software? Clearly the model is ready as you can see it all in light-blue on the printer/thumb drive, and as I said, it prints the first layer correctly.
I have calibrated the printer previously.
It's level, I even have a new resin resevoir with a clean film on the bottom.
What I noticed when I try to print vs what any cubic provides is, you know how the print head or plate moves up and down consistently. It almost seems any of these problem models, the printing plate stays in a static position for quite a while before it moves onto the next.
The screen shows what appears to be the correct layer being printed but I noticed even the plate doesn't move down back into the resin as it should.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
Ps - I'm using I believe their brand resin, the plant-based one.
