    Hi Agis,

    Could you be a little bit clearer about what you are trying to do?

    If it is a flat surface you could manually alter the gcode by having it start not at 0, but at a given height.

    Wouldn't it be easier to glue the 2 parts together?

    Hi and thank you for the fast eesponse!

    The pegs and the cycles are different sufaces I want to generate on a smooth base. In other words they do not stick togather. I wonder whether the UM 2 can print those...

    In other words one object I want to print has the described pegs. The other object hast the described circles.

    I've seen pretty good results from the ATUM, but I really can't give any advice on DLP printers, there are so many on the marked atm ....

    You can do this on the UM2 with a smaller nozzle. The default nozzle is .4mm diameter hole allowing objects down to .8mm thick but you can get smaller nozzles e.g. .25mm and even .15mm diameter holes. I'm not sure how reliable the .15mm nozzle is - I expect it may clog easily but not sure.
