-P1. What resin?//+P1. What ​type of resin?// 
 + 
 +Resin plays a big role in the printing success rate. Each resin has a different ability to withstand the peel force and stick to the build plate. While Phenom allows users to set custom exposure settings, many of the resins on the market are untested, so when in doubt or if you are new to resin printing, stick with Deft resin. ​ Resins made for laser SLA or DLP printers are also unlikely to work for Phenom even if it is designed for 405nm light source. And lastly, many resins designed for small format LCD/MSLA printers released too much heat and can degrade LCD lifespan quicker than expected.
