Benefits of Large Volume SLA 3D Printing

When I initially started with SLA printing, the printers available had relatively low build volumes. Now that a fresh batch of large-volume SLA units is available, the situation has changed. I was lucky enough to receive an Anycubic Photon M3 Max for review and testing, and it is, in a word, enormous.

How to smooth a 3D print?

Objects created with a 3D printer do not always look as good as they should. While the rendering of 3D printed parts is generally acceptable, this may not be sufficient if the object is intended for sale or display. Some people simply want a perfectly smooth, shiny surface for their 3D print. Fortunately, it is possible to achieve this level of perfection with the right tools. This tutorial explains how to smooth your ABS and PLA 3D prints for optimal results.
