Printed object has very visible layers

Even though SLA printers can achieve much better resolution than standard FFF/FDM 3D printers, layers on objects can be still visible if you look very closely. If you feel like the layers on your prints are too visible, there’s a couple of things you can try.

Solution: Print a sample object with a good/tested resin (like the sample bottle of Prusa Orange) and see if the issue is still present. If it’s not, then the cause is usually related to slicing settings. Try rotating the object to eliminate gradually rising / declining surfaces. Extreme exposure times can also produce visible layers. Mixed / low quality resins can also affect the print quality – use a fresh, high-quality resin and shake the bottle for at least 20 seconds before you pour the resin in the tank.
