Which Steptablet are you using?  21, 31, 41?

How many distinct steps are printing?

What is the reflection density of the darkest step? The next to darkest step?


Best Wishes,

Finally, after fully drying, checking at what point the density did not change appreciably between successive exposures, taking the higher number for safety.  That came to 25 minutes in my case.  My homemade UV box is not that powerful.  I can probably get away with 20 minutes, I think.  Perhaps that will give me a slightly higher white point with not so big hit on the Dmax.
