    the photon gets good reviews - but then all the cheap resin machines get pretty good reviews.

    They are very simple machines - mechanically, so not much to go wrong.

    Retraction distance wise start at about 2mm and...

    work on the principle that the power supply for most 3d printers is somewhere between 100-300 watts.
    I've rarely seen anything over 350 watt listed in a speification.

    hmm, odd, it's only in the one direction.
    have you tried either using a different slicer, or changing the infill direction settings ?

    Plus if it's a creality machine - which one ? Could be an...

    sounds interesting - I'll have a look.
