Any suggestions for supports when printing in resin?

Do you have any experience printing a complex piece like this in resin? Usually, the best option for this type of model will be SLS because it will not require supports. However, if printing with supports, keep in mind the general 45-degree rule. You will likely need supports on those outer overhangs. Anything below a 45-degree angle, of course, should be supported by the previous resin layer. If you have a software package like MeshMixer, it can add supports to the model automatically for you. You may wish to scale up the model if you end up with a lot of support material on the interior, which could be tricky to remove.
