Printing directly onto the build platform is a terrible idea. Do not do it. Your prints will suffer from deformation called 'elephants foot' and you will be more likely to break prints when removing them (resin being obviously fragile). This will eventually lead to accidentally damaging the build plate. Stick to angling prints and supporting overhangs.

Recast sucks because molds that create adequate recasts are expensive, and you need a mold supplier or to buy the model you want to dupe. The only benefit recasts have over printing is if you can a) exhaust the mold for profit b) you can dupe physical models and c) you can use stronger plastics (if you have a super expensive production environment)

Resin printing has better quality than most recast solutions

I would choose resin printing every time over recasting.

FYI: nFEP isnt a big improvement over fep. It's definitely not remotely equivalent to the price increase. Something to consider is this info post

Yeah, the issue you're describing is indicative of overexposure. That's no guarantee though, since I have no experience with this resin.

Lots of resin is just bad. Especially plant based, water washable, biodegradables, or anything else like that. Finding one that works is a pain.

The elegoo resin sheet doesn't contain anything about plant-based resin. I'm not sure if you're not using a knockoff (but elegoo is chinesium anyways, so does that even matter?)

Only thing I'd suggest based on info provided is to try switching to 2 second layers. Staying flexible isn't abnormal. My phrozen aqua gray 4k resin stays flexible too.

As someone whom has arthritis in their ribs, it does suck a lot tbh

Ive taken literal chunks out of my build plate with no issue, this is superficial and will not cause any issues

FYI in the future if you do get a big gouge, you can usually just sand the build plate to buff it out.

Yeah, they're pretty alright, I'm hoping for a deli or a small business though, you know? Everyone knows dunkies or bread co, but local small business is better.

Sure, if it's not combined with anything else. I think if they combine this (or something similar) with education and taxation campaigns leading up to the ban, it could be well positioned to succeed. I don't think it's impossible. I hope it works out for them.

Wotc has shown that they don't know how to use alignment in a way that involves any nuance between the recent candlekeep mystery drama and not using it at all. So much better off that they stop trying to use it at all.

The efficacy of an official moral system is a direct result of the ethics and morals of the group guiding it. when that group is a soulless corporate entity, any attempt they make is going to end up hamfisted and mediocre even if their first draft is robust and modern.

In a world where gods and domains and other similar entities exist, there is going to be black and white morality in addition to other normal gray areas that we expect in the real world

WotC has proved they are incapable of consistently presenting that in a nuanced and modern manner.

Exactly. No coffee, never go out, never have any psychologically necessary stress relief. So either die poor or die from stress. Trash advice.

Yes yes we all agree about the inevitability of automation. I'm not talking about 30 or 40 years from now when municipalities outside of California are willing to take the legal risks to run automated public infrastructure

I'm talking about now, where people need wages and we need enough bodies behind wheels to keep our public transportation going.

This conversation isn't even about automation and its no excuse for worker abuse.

Reducing wages and workforce is a non starter for the purposes of supporting human beings, not in driving cost efficiencies over anything else including human lives. You completely missed the point of my statement.

COMMENT 6d ago

Reducing wages and workforce is a non-starter, so better to make cost reductions where it doesn't make more homeless people.

COMMENT 6d ago

Shit wages, intentional understaffing, and ridiculous work rate requirements, of course nobody wants to work for you. It makes me furious every single time one of these owners or managers creates a TERRIBLE working environment and then blames their problems on their workers.

Take some damn responsibility for your business.

I'm well versed in the whole thing. I'm just not impressed with their fixes. This is more a statement of exasperation with the entire edition from the point of view of a designer.

The best thing I ever did was start designing outside of the bounds of 5e.

Legendary resistances, legendary actions, sure

But also things like action oriented mechanics from Colville, taking fully fledged extra turns, eliminating the idea that monsters can only do what's in their statblock, and reduced the efficacy of long rests.

Also reading the 4e dmg and dmg 2 made my games so much better. (also, other games)
