George here from 3D Hubs, thanks for your questions and for taking a look at the email we sent over.
1st - Let me start off by saying we’re definitely not down on FDM, we think it’s capabilities are amazing and will be showcasing it in our next mail! We compare the two in the article as they tend to be our two most popular materials. Within the “print orientation part” of the Designing Parts for SLA article we discuss all the ways in which support affects an SLA print, as it’s an integral part of the process. It’s also discussed in the post processing article we sent over in the mail too.
2nd - We understand FDM is capable of amazing things in the hands of talented owners such as yourself, but to not raise expectations super high we try to be realistic and work with the averages we see on the platform.
3rd - Just to add again, its not so much better or superior we’re just listing it’s capabilities. It does certain things better and certain things worse like you say, we’re just trying to help provide resources so everyone can find the right material for them.
Hope this helped answer some of your questions, what printers are you currently running?
