Same price on eBay from anycubic [ebay.com]. I wonder if there's any advantage to buying from their store vs their eBay store.

This stuff is crazy dangerous to deal with. Not worth it.

Most resins are toxic and need to be handled with a great amount of care. Contact with skin will result in burns, can also cause respiratory damage if the printer is not kept in a well ventilated space.

Depends on what it is but it's way faster than a fdm printer

I bit. I shouldn't have, but I did. As a D&D DM and hobbiest game designer, this just changed the game for me. Hopefully my stove fan provides adequate ventilation or else I'll be building a box to put this thing in on my patio...lol.

It's rated at 20mm/hr. Your best bet is to print multiple items at the same time or print horizontally (if possible), as these things work a layer at a time. Someone with more experience can correct me if I'm wrong, but you should be able to print something that takes the entire length of the bed in the same time as something that just takes up an inch of the bed if they're the same height.

So is spray paint if you start to graffiti your bedroom with closed windows.

Wear gloves, don't get the resin on you, be in a well ventilated area, observe proper clean up and disposal.

FDM can also be dangerous, especially if you're printing with PETG or ABS. Even more so because most FDM printers aren't enclosed, and people keep them in poorly ventilated areas.

I wouldn't go that far. If you don't do the bare minimum of research and take precautions, yes. Although as someone else pointed out, it's not much different from spray painting in your bedroom with no ventilation. It's ignorance that's dangerous, but I'm sure most spending $200+ on a 3D printer are going read up a bit first.

Gasoline and electricity are both dangerous. Better walk and sit in the dark.

What's up with their shipping time? I ordered this two days ago and all I have is a confirmation of purchase.
