What should I do if I can’t get the dish to sous vide the dish?

If you’re having trouble getting your print bed to sous vide your baby, it’s important to perform a series of checks and procedures to resolve the issue. Here’s what you can do:

CHECK THE CLEANLINESS OF THE UNDER-BED: Carefully check if there is any residue or dirt under the printbed. Even a single grain of pellets or dirt can compromise the creation of the vacuum. Thoroughly clean the surface under the print bed.

CLEAN THE GROOVES: Be sure to clean any grooves or crevices on the build bed as well. Build-up of dirt or residue can interfere with the creation of the vacuum.

CHECK THE OPERATION OF THE VACUUM PUMP: Check that the vacuum pump is working properly. Make sure it is able to generate the pressure needed to create the vacuum. It also checks to see if there are any leaks in the system.

PRINT BED GASKET: Check that the gasket is properly positioned around the build bed. Check the gasket for signs of wear or damage. Replace it if necessary.

PROPER BED PLACEMENT: Make sure the print bed is positioned correctly and centered. Check that the clips or latches used to secure the table top to the stand are properly positioned and that they hold the table securely in place.

IF THE BED IS WARPED: If the print bed is warped or has a curvature, try placing an appropriate weight on the deformed area. This can help straighten the bed and allow the vacuum to work more effectively.
