Hi i was wondering if anyone here as had experience resolving issues of over thickening at radius (example: corner of a U-shaped plate). I suspect the radius of curvature is too small at the bend, and is restricting resin flow, hence leading to areas where thickness becomes too high. A possible solution I was thinking was to reposition (or add) vacuum ports closer to the other side of the radius to assist with the flow.
Has anyone come across this issue and could provide some insight? Thanks in advance.
