      Does anyone have any experience on what it costs to print in resin?
      I have seen the Black Ship printed in resin and it looks amazing but what would that cost?
      has anyone done this?

      I’m interested in knowing more about this too.

      on the anycubic photon, it’s about 60$ for a liter of resin, then about 70ml per vat, which would print about 12 player mini;s

      The biggest issues (besides cost) is likely size as most affordable resin printers have pretty small beds, You could probably print two or four= 4 inch terrain floor tile per vat I am estimating…

      Sorry its not very exact in answering the question as I have not printed tiles before…..

      The biggest issue is finding a printer with a decent build volume. Most of the cheaper printers have a sub-100mm Y axis size (e.g Anycubic Photon will only do 65mm),
      The cheapest, at least 100x100x100mm build-volume printer I could find was the Peopoly Moai for $1300.

      As a rule of thumb, the resin printing is about 10 x the cost per pound compared to printing with PLA.
