UV2 Gloss printing on Textured Plastics

Post by Lizardface » Wed May 24, 2017 12:31 pm

I am experiencing some annoying effects when printing on textured material. I have tested on a smooth glossed surface and this is not happening in that instance, but on textured material it is producing a flaring effect. It's like the ink is being laid down, and then before it cures it is running out in all directions and finding paths across the textured material.

Does anybody have any tips or idea why this might be happening? I remember printing on textured material in the past with no issue and this has started to happen quite recently.

Hiya, what settings? Are you printing multi-layered embossing? Can you post pics?
