I’m using Zortrax M200 printer to print several testing samples as per ASTM testing standards for Plastics and Polymers. I faced a product failure while printing a sample at the following processing parameters (45-degree printing angle, 0.09 thickness, Z-ASA material, 70% density). Different thicknesses were used successfully at 45-degree, except the highlight one. The Z-suit software indicated a successful simulation (with adding supports ), however, in fabrication is in contrast. If you have ever faced this issue and resolve , please your advice and recommendations are highly appreciated.
Note: I attached a sample of the failed part
could you send me your zprojx?
I think you might need to perform axes maintenance.
Thanks for your support and collaboration. I

I have uploaded the zprojx that experienced the failure. I have printed two different parts using the same 45 degree printing angle with higher printing thickness and they were successful.
Sorry for late reply.
To be sure, which firmware and Z-Suite version are you using?
Did you check if axes maintenance helps you?
Do I see correctly that the layers separated at some point?
Thanks for your reply and support. I was using the last two versions of Z-suit software and both of them reported the same error. After multiple attempts I found out the main reason for this failure which was the gap between the part and it’s support structure. Therefore, I modified the part gap manually in the Z-suit simulation to be zero which lead to have an acceptable part.
