I have some relatively complex small parts (c. 7 x 7 x 5 mm) I’m building large numbers of which I’ve found work reasonably well when built with the “On Build Platform” setting using custom supports. I can fit a lot more parts onto a single build and also use a lot less resin than with the standard rafts - using rafts means I use more resin on the rafts than the parts!
(The parts are commercially sensitive so I can’t upload them here, sorry!).
What I was wondering was if there was a way of using the support types used with the “On Build Platform” mode, but with the part raised from the platform?
The main issue is that you lose a certain amount of the component (I’ve found around 0.5-0.7 mm) on the surface in contact with the build platform using this mode. I can change the part design to take this into account, but the edge in contact with the platform is always a little rough.
I’m assuming not, but is there a way around this? A way of building very small parts without the rafts?
