      I started with a Elegoo Mars and then upgraded to the Saturn for its bigger platform.

      But you can also use an Anycubic of similar. The MSLA technology is not that complicated

      But it is MESSY !
      Unlike FDM printing you have to do some post processing after the print.
      Clean of uncured resin from the part with Ethanol or IPA. then dry them and cure them with UV-Light afterwards.

      If you have worked with glasfiber & Epoxy you know what to expect.

      And print times are on the slow side. the only thing that effects the duration is the height in Z.

      I do resent fibre glass. I’ve been repairing fairings off an old motorbike and honestly I’m overjoyed that it’s over. Resin printing would be a LOT cheaper than lathe, but also lathe…
