In a similar vein, I now have a bunch of styrofoam from the packaging that I feel like could be made into some kind of terrain. If anyone has any ideas, I'm all ears!

Grant, Grant, throw it away right now! It's a trap! "Oh, I could make a cool bunker out of this someday....." How many times have I told myself that. Oh man, I think I still have the back half of my Gorkamorka fort stashed away 15% done...... Don't be fooled!

@grant - yay! much excitement! Is that a Saturn 4? I'm jealous - that's a good deal bigger than my wee Mars 4 :D. But anyway - good luck with getting it all set up and running. Since I've literally just spent the past few weeks doing exactly the same thing myself, I'd be more than happy to advise/recommend things if you have any questions at all.

Fwiw, the one thing I would recommend is printing off some calibration prints. I got mine here:

(and how to read it is here: https://ameralabs.com/blog/town-calibration-part/)

and
https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/tool/bi ... r-whatever

how to read em (and just generally a great how-to document)
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aoM ... g=h.gjdgxs

and I just started trying with this one:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5436642

Also, I've learned that different resins have very, very different needs when it comes to printing. The settings that produce great prints on my Elegoo WW 8k resin produce massively over-exposed prints on my Sunlu WW ABS-like. So I'm working on that...


But aye - happy printing, and best of luck!


Oooh, and the Most Useful Thing I learned was: run some hot/boiling water over the back of your build plate before you try to remove your prints. If you do, they will generally slide off with minimal effort. If you don't, welcome to chisel-town. (The hot water makes the plate expand slightly, which loosens the bond on the raft)
