When I first considered buying a printer I was leaning toward PLA even though it looks like the resin printer does better detail. Mostly what I want to print would be building details like meters and maybe some interior details. Buying this stuff from shapeways would far exceed the cost of a printer and printing materials when you add in shipping. What I see here on the forum appears to be only resin printers. I don't look at the layout through a magnifying glass. What I read tells me I might not want to deal with resin just to see rivets. What made you choose which printer you bought ?
