Thank you.  I have a Photon that I haven't tried yet. The Mars looks like a clone from what I see in ads for it.  I'll be using ChiTuBox for slicing from the start, in a couple hours actually.

I want to compare it to the Solus DLP.

First Photon print looks good, no problem at 50 microns. Printed a 1:8 scale Flathead stock head with water jackets. Next I will try 25 microns (0.001") layer height.

Yeah Pete, I go there.  It was one of your posts and that forum that led me to buy the Photon. Do you print???

Not yet - I need to first get better at 3D CAD. It takes time (and I have lots of already started non-CAD projects).  I hope to do that someday and to get my own machine, but for now I can ask my Railwire friends to print my designs (when those are ready).

And you're right - I do remember posting a link to that Photon thread elsewhere in the forum.
