                    And in one piece (those antenna parts were of a concern)

                    They look great on the sub.

                    Grtz,

                        Bart, outstanding!
                        Yannis, that is amazing and the cherry on top will be those scopes. This is a fun build to watch.
                        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                          What's the absolute limit with these resin printers? The XY resolution seems to pan out at around 0.05-.0.1mm (1.25-2.5 thou) resolution, which should be adequate for all but the finest of detail. Most bureaus don't quote below 0.3mm details.

                            I print at 0.05mm layers, can go to 0.02mm but that sometimes mess things up, so I stick to 0.05mm all the time. I lknow about the bureaus, they were not able to print my props, the reason is that the post processing is so abrasive.

                            The walls in your model are too thin for the current geometry and cannot withstand our manufacturing process without breaking. During the intense cleaning process, we blast the model with air and glass beads to achieve a powder-free model. While, for processed and premium finishes, we polish the model with thousands of ceramic pellets.

                              It seems they could just not do the finishing process, if requested, to get them professionally made.

                                I meant the x,y resolution, which is dictated by the LCD screen resolution rather than the z height.

                                I was looking at resin printing for some fittings for a very small tug I made. Most parts have been hand made, just a small number of bits would benefit from 3d printing namely the bollards and the anchor windlass. The scale is very small at around 1/140, so I wondered if the resin printer could resolve detail on gears this size as i know it's well beyond the scope of FDM. The height of windlass is only about 5mm, I think the frames would be easy to render, but not sure the gear teeth would come out, as they'll be tiny.
