    3d printing seems to always come back to the same issue.

    Getting the first layer down clean and tight.

    I mastered this on fdm printers nearly a decade ago.

    Resin - hmm, not so much.

    yes
    the printing part is easy, the scans the tricky part :-)

    two things.

    The latest flashprint works just fine - just select 'creator pro'
    All the printer is looking for is the x3g file.
    save the file to an sd card - don;t bother using a usb cable....

    loaded the stl into simplify 3d, sliced with 0% infill.
    perfect hollow shell.

    so that aspect you can leave to the slicer.

    And as the shell will print cleaner with the windows in, I'd do...

    I mean the fuirst image looks fine to me.

    Do you not have files or sanding tools where you live ?

    Print the first image and then spend about 20 minutes cleaning it up. Job done.

    you can do that with a large brim that is not seperated from the model base or with a raft.
    A seperated brim of 2 or three lines is a good idea as it primes the print nozzle and ensures the actual...

    lol well somewhere down the line it all has to go somewhere.

    If you can't throw it away or flush it away - where is it supposed to go ?

    My point is that you either dispose of how you can - or...

    cheers mate :-)

    Everytime I slice the dish off - the whole model goes to crap.
    So hopefully that'll save me some hassle :-)

    The ship looks like it'll need some supports, but not as many as...

    Nope fdm is the better option.Many reasons, some I've mentioned before.Resins are not currently considered to be skin safe.The cured resins are stillimited in their physical characteristics. And...

    There are - I believe - two options for support types.And you can also add them manually .I really don't use supports, I find it's a lot simpler simply to design items that print without needing...

    I think it's just two terms for the same technology.An ultraviolet light is projected through a lens against a panel and where the panel is opaque, the light is blocked and the exposed sections are...

    right lol

    I do not fiddle about before or after a print.
    once the machine is setup and working - it's set up and working.

    The people who always fiddle, will always fiddle.

    well it's sitting on the table behind me.
    All clean and shiny and levelled and ready to go.
    The test grid comes up fine.

    Hopefully, I'll be getting it sticky and messy after walking the dogs. ...

    well I honestly think my twotrees sapphire pro2 is hands down the best built machine around.
    It's a corexy setup, so really fast and precise.
    The top is a solid sheet of 6mm aluminium.

    well, there are a number of better options.
    printers with larger build volumes, idex print heads and an enclosed print volume.

    You seem to be going about this the long and difficult way round. ...

    The formatting would seem to depend on a number of factors.

    The forum software is fairly old and doesn't like some of the modern browser programs.

    tell me about it.
    postal costs to the states have trebled in the last 18 months.
    And from what I have seen - it's gone up by even more to send something from the states to the uk.
