Been interested in 3D printing for a long time and now i am in a position to get on. Ultimaker seems like my best choice for the resolution (would like to make resin kit like statues as well as gaming minis) and i dont care about the speed, (if it takes 5 hours to get the res i want let it take 5 hours) but in all my research some things come up again and again.
The key to geed resolution is a heated build bed, is this true and if so is there a heated bed default on the Ultimaker? The resolution of less than .1 mm seems perfect and i have see examples of people doing this but it seems that it takes a lot of practice, (which i am prepared to do) but some modification to hardware/firmware, is this true or is it a case of it can do less than .1 mm ress out of the box but better res takes some tweaking? Finally the layered stripping that i see in most figures i assume is the slight bulge that each layer has when layed down requireing either a sanding down of the bulge or a filling in of the valleys, But is that stripping a real effect or just an optical illusion, i mean if i painted the model does this stripe effect disappear?
There i think thats all of my questions, apperciate all answers and help and guideance on this pathway
