Re: Circle pendant coming out egg shaped

Is the back of the scarf pin hollowed out? Maybe it is shrinkage of the resin due to the geometry?

I wonder if you print it on its back with elevated supports versus at an angle, would it do the same thing?

Re: Flashing issues

True but it also contaminates your resin with tiny little flakes of the cured resin peeling off from the flashing. Looking closer at your last photo, I do see a lot of small debris on the build plate. Did you filter your resin before that print? The only real solution is to back off the bottom laye...
