Finished. Man, this was a beast of a print.

Now I need to finish cleaning and then glue together the appropriate parts.

Nice Hentzau! The Snapmaker is super appealing . . . but a bit spendy for me.

My mouse button has been hovering over the "Buy" button on an AnyCubic Photon and Wash and Cure Station for about a week now. They're having an anniversary going on for the next 5 days, and I can get the pair for about $200 off.

(And right after I posted this, I checked the status of my Creality CR6-SE and it's sitting in the UPS sorting facility in the south suburbs...)

I was looking at Creality's LD-002R resin printer... $200. Print area is pretty small, basically a 119x65x160mm area, i.e. size of a 5.5 inch LCD screen. But it seems it'd be PLENTY for miniatures?

I have looked at the LD-002R, and the specs are similar. And I do like the extra filtration in the LD-002R.

But the bundle cost with the wash and cure station on the Anycubic Photon is what keeps me going back to it...

Already picked it up. I may have a 3D model problem.

Dont feel bad. I think i have hundreds (if not over 1000) 3d models from various places including tons of Kickstarters that havent even been downloaded yet.
I also have a new 3D printer on the way...ish..
I backed the Snapmker 2.0 KS and got a label notice and it "looks" 1 of the 2 boxes (I ordered the printer and their enclosure so its one of those 2) to on the way. The other one was still in label created status but if i understand the KS update theu just released if a label is generated it means my stuff is in California and just a matter of them putting the label on the box and giving it to ups

Yeah, I forgot to mention that I ordered an Anycubic Photon...then I unordered it and then ordered a Photon Mono. Should be here early October.

Box 1 showed up the other day and of course, it was the enclosure and not the printer itself. The box is HUGE and I was not expecting it to be that big.
Box 2 is scheduled for delivery for today so I'm hoping it's the actual printer and not a 2nd part of the enclosure.
