Chimera: $60 DLP High-Res 3D Printer
Excellent project and great instructions.I'm a little confused about the actual resin printing process. How much resin needs to be above the platform? Does only the top surface of the resin harden - maybe the UV doesn't penetrate very far? If that's true, then is it really just a matter of being sure the platform is close enough to the first cured layer so it sticks? And do I understand correctly (probably not) that each time a layer is printed the platform submerges to get a little fresh resin, then rises back up except not quite as far as it went down (difference being the layer height)?Dumb question: Is top-down printing - looks like the bottom layer gets printed first. Thanks, really a great project and explanation.
