I’m looking at print time estimates of a simple part in Preform. I know it can be notoriously inaccurate, but I’m just trying to get a relative sense of how the different printers and resins compare.
A few outliers stuck out:
Is Tough 1500 really 50% faster on the 3L than the 3? Can someone with experience using it on both comment?
@Formlabs: Will the 3L eventually receive the Tough 2000 speed improvements currently in Beta on the 3?
How is Draft faster (or similar) at 100um than 200um on the 3L? I tried a couple different parts with similar results. Is something amiss in the parameters used to generate estimates for that printer & resin? I also noticed the Choosing the right material page needs to be updated to show Draft Resin on the 3L/3BL supports 100um (since February).
|Resin||Form 2||Form 3||Form 3 (Beta)||Form 3L||Form 3L (Beta)|
|Draft V2 (100um)||2.25||4.25||4.25||2.5|
|Draft V2 (200um)||1.25||3.75||2.75|
Note times are rounded to the nearest quarter hour. Layer height 100um except where indicated. On 3L, part is entirely within one LPU zone. Preform version 3.19.1.
