Regarding supporting the openings, the openings are very small. The model is a ship’s superstructure in 1/350 scale. The round openings represent portholes. They are just 1 mm in diameter, too small for supports.
It should be noted that misshapen openings are occurring mostly in the vertical plane, and most noticeable in gray V4, not black V4. The model does print perfectly on a Form 2 in gray V4 with very precisely shaped openings all around. You can see that Robert’s test print compares very favorably with the Form 2-printed gray V4 model shown below.
Since the Form 3 prints this model very well in black V4 resin with excellent opening shapes, it can be sold in that material. Customers, however, prefer gray for easier painting.
Robert’s test print indicates that the Form 3 update has achieved a much improved print quality in gray V4. This is extremely welcome and encouraging. Once FL is able to improve the shape of openings in the vertical plane, this model will be sellable in gray V4 resin, too, not just black, which is what my customers want.
Very happy with this new update.
