Got my Resin printer working at last

 Finally got the Photn S running.  But the screen quit working.  Lucky for me any cubic any sale special on the Photon Mega X.  What an amazing resin printer.   The next problem was to resolve the type of resin I was using.  The Any cubic grey normal was to brittle.   

 So I got on you tube to find the best type to use.  The old saying you get what you pay for is so true.  Siraya Tech resin was the answer.   So I did more reseach to find out that if you blend the Siraya fast grey with their Tenaius flexable resin. You end up with the perfect mix.  The prints are no longer brittle.

Here are my prints
