      Would these terrain pieces be fine to print with SLA Resin type printers or is it often better to use PLA filament type printers?

      Its typically better to use FDM (filament) printers. SLA printers are great but resin can become very expensive if you’re printing a lot of terrain. Also build plate size can be an issue as well, many larger pieces might not be able to be printed without breaking up into multiple smaller pieces. There are a few people i’ve seen print just the outer facias of clorehaven building pieces though. It makes it cheaper for sure but it won’t clip together. If you’re just getting into printing and primarily doing it for terrain. I’d highly suggest going the FDM printer route.

      We generally design everything to print on a medium sized FDM printer, but stuff like furniture and high detail small pieces is fairly cost effective and stunning in detail on a resin printer. Tiles and larger buildings I would only really recommend on an FDM printer.
