I want to try my luck with SLA printer, it would be my first one. I'm thinking in terms of long term investment. It for personal applications only. So I can invest only once. I was going thru the literatures and shortlisted a few. Since budget constraint, I'm looking for a good printer which gives you a very good (detailed) print. There are a few questions which have arised in my mind.
1. Formlabs Form 2 is good but the Liquid Resin is just too much on the pocket. So can a DLP be substituted for Photopolymer recomended by Formlabs?
2. Can I use any other Liquid Resin (a cheaper one) sold by different companies?
3. I'm bit confused with other printers too like which one to take
a) Liquid Crystal HR
b) Wanhao Duplicator D7
c) Nobel 1.0 A
d) or Formlabs Form 2?
How do you caliberate a printer? as only Nobel 1.0 A has the option.
