Yes and no.  I printed a Millenium Falcon.  Then I started working on a Reading cab for an SD45 using Sketchup.  I got the basic shape done and printed one to check it.  Looks good but I have a long way to go until it's done.
The same cab would also work for the PRSL GP38s. 
The fabric of reality has begun to fray.

Here are the very first prints I did on the printer. Have since learned a lot about orientation, resins, curing and more and need to dial things in a bit more.  Green resin that comes with the printer after a quick IPA bath:

Looks pretty good.  Which printer are you using?  It looks like the Anycubic Photon like I have based on the green resin and the support structure.

Hey Marc,

Sorry for the delay in getting back here to this thread. Yes, it is the Anycubic Photon. Still tweaking things and doing tests, but so far impressed.
