Can anyone share practical insights on the impact of different build orientations on the mechanical properties of SLA printed parts, particularly for eventual load-bearing applications? 

I would appreciate any practical experience examples.

Thanks

      I’ve heard that the parts oriented horizontally generally show a 20-30% improvement in tensile strength compared to vertical orientations in SLA 3D printing. But I don’t have any practical experience.
