Hi Christian,

you canīt use ACES building style on your Stereos MAX, but you donīt
need it. In earlier times stereos systems used a very effective building
style for acrylat resins. For your epoxy resin ( i think you use SOMOS
6100) you dont need a special building style, because the shrinkage of
the material is very low, so you have nearly no curl. Your EOS MAX
offers a special hatch style for UP and Down skin that you get better
surfaces with SOMOS 6100. There is also a special building style
includes to your machine software called skin and core which is similar

In my opinion the effective building styles EOS uses makes the machines
so fast.
