Dove in today.

 

Good: WAY faster than the CR-6 filament  printer.

WAY better detail than the CR-6. Jewelry quality, my test print was a ring. ::):

 

Bad: NOISY! Not vaccuum cleaner loud, but blow dryer loud.

Light leaks! UV rich light spilling out the bottom and sides.

 

Between the noise and the light, no way we can keep this in our bedroom like the CR-6.

 

But the Good is WAY more important than the bad.

 

I love my precioussss! (Clutches newly printed ring.)

With the way the fumes are ventilated, I don't think you'd want to do that anyways. 

 

Welcome to the resin club!!

Well finally re-assembled my VAT & I'm printing again. Will it be a success? We shall see in 6 to 7 hrs (in other words, it'll finish while I'm at work tonight, so I guess it's more like 15 hrs & I'll see it when I get home).

 

I decided to start the female fomorian witch "mini" from Rocket Pig. I've decided to start her waist down piece. Fingers crossed!!

I'll clean it up later. I need a nap first.

Yeppers!

 

That first liter of resin doesn't last very long, does it?

 

Printing about six minis every run.

 

Four if they are Large.

 

Mostly MUMBLE! (I'm channeling Grump ::P: )

Her lower half came out great! I did chop/cut off a foot as I was cutting a close support, but the break was clean & it'll easily glue back  on. I think it happened due to her being hollow & just not enough material in the area. Oddly with her being hollow there are supports inside her, I can't cut off.

 

I started her torso & if it comes out, I'll work on that in the morning.
