You mention the clear resin was soft and quite quickly got worn. That makes me wonder if you post cured the printed parts properly or just cleaned them with IPA and tried them out?

Peter, I used the process that Forms Labs recommends of washing in IPA (using two baths) and then leaving the prints to dry for some time. I didn't use any other post curing process, although Form Labs does detail some options here: http://formlabs.com/support/finishing/post-curing-prints/. It is definitely possible that these might make the parts tougher, but they still remain somewhat soft.

Very helpful review! I'm specifically looking for a 3D printer to product clear objects, and this one looks pretty promising. However, I'm wondering if the clear resin was truly white-clear, or did it end up with a yellow tint that some of these resins often have?
