I am also having the worst time removing the fine-point supports from the
platform. Strings of supports everywhere. The part comes out real nice,
especially the smaller ones. When I grow heavier parts, the parts seem to shift
a little. Maybe because of the weight? The parts are supported well and are
orientated with much consideration. I'm using this support in a 250 and I know
larger machines handle larger and heavier parts. Has anyone experienced this
with fine-point supports?

ps. Would they be able to extract any DNA from a sla250 machine to bring us
sla250 users back to life from the tar pits?
