Custom Part on the Bean: Software+Printing

I created a simple custom part and printed it on the Bean. This video shows the software interaction and use of the built-in SLAcer.js, and some random verbiage on design considerations.

One of the things that threw me off when designing this part is that the green resin has no measurable shrinkage at these print sizes. I’m used to designing interference fits on resins that have 1-3% shrinkage, so seeing the measurements end up spot-on for a thin-walled part was unexpected.
