The shipping cost is over the price of the resin, and is the same for multiple quantities. SSo more expensive than Makerjuice, at least for Canada it would be.

Makerjuice is the best that can be done for the price. As far as I know they are the only company (in the hobby space) that even talks about shrinkage. That is the VERY MOST IMPORTANT PRIMARY FACTOR in the resin. You can talk about color, yield strength, heat deflection temperature etc... but all of that is secondary to solving the shrinkage problem. If you plan on building real sized parts in the real world at least.

The big boys solved this problem over 20 years ago. Hoping to see some truly low shrinkage resin in the near future. (talking to you Josh :!: )

My feelings exactly. Shrinkage is the weak link in all resin printers in the hobbyist realm. I've had a few conversations with Josh about getting the shrinkage as low as possible. He is very helpful and open to solving this problem which is a very good thing. I have a sample of his latest batch I have yet to test (too cold in the garage at this time) :)

Edit: Found it, I was searching FTD Resin. lol

Maybe you could share a link, google brings nothing up for me. It would only cost about 20% for a better shrink rate depending on shipping costs.

www.funtodo.net, look at the distributors for a distributor near you to save on shipping and shipping time.
Most of the people who distribute the resin are 3D DLP printer enthusiast, just like you and me :P

Craig, do you have yellow or just clear, black, and red? I saw some prints on your site that were yellow. Did they add their own pigment?
