Hi everyone, I have an interesting print dilemma for a customer of mine. I’m printing a cylinder that has some reliefs cut into it on the “top” of it and a completely flat “bottom” that I want to print directly on the build plate. I’ve been doing research about people using their own custom rafts or adding a single layer of resin to use as… leverage I suppose to get the spatula underneath the print? Like what this guy did: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoVUvTqsYHI
I’m wondering the best way to go about printing this to save resin and cost. If I use the supports and rafts in preform, the material used almost triples and doesn’t give my client the detail he needs due to all the cutting and sanding of supports.
The cylinder is 130mm in diameter and 14mm tall.
Side note: The cylinder is being using as a master mold for vacuum molds of some sort so I was going to print it in tough resin and print it solid to hold up as long as possible for him.
