    @Jaidek Thank you! Multi part prints are key when you want to do large SLA prints. It saves you a ton of post cleanup work when you can divide the model into ways so that it can be printed with minimal supports. All the prints that you see featured here were printed with the Formlabs Resin. Most prints cost about $10-$25 to print. My first image, Wisteria is about $30 in material. It really comes down to weight, not so much height. The Shroomer 3D Print for Matt and Brett is upwards of $80 in material. She weighs a ton and was printed solid. The idea with these recent Form 2 prints was not to save on material, but to print the thickest, heavies and hardest thing I could with it.

    Here are some photos from 2013, and also the first print I did on the Form 1. This kind of highlights my cleanup process, which is usually concentrated on where the supports land. The old supports were extremely dense and were really hard to cleanup. I use to have these images on my blog, but I have taken that down, so i will share them here.

    Using white filler putty to patch up the back parts of the model where the supports landed.

    I build a small paint booth for priming my model.

    After priming, I would do a second pass of patching and sanding.

    Nearly final coat

    Doing a last bit of touch up on the cheek. It is important to prime, sand till smooth and then prime lightly. Over-painting the whole thing will cause the paint to build up and you will lose a lot of detail.

    Cleanup from models on the Form 1 were much more tedious than the Form 2 prints. The prints now are very well optimized and you can customize where they land, making spot cleanup much easier.

    Default Great looking work.

    Great looking work, I especially enjoy seeing the cleanup touches using putty. The cleanup really shows the mastery in making these detail prints. Well done.

    Great thread! The Form 2 seems like a big step up in print quality. Do your prints come out good first pass? Or did you get holes or abnornal stepping streaks etc? I usually find it takes a few prints (each adjusting supports and positioning) before getting the perfect result.

    Unfortunately, I missed out on your last webinar "3D printing for Zbrush artists" will you guys over at Mold3d be making those videos available for purchase later on your site? (please say yes)
    (if this is not the appropriate place to discuss this topic, p.m. me and let me know! Thanks)
