Encapsulating metal parts in SLA

Dear All

After seeing DERC's winning part (a complicated metal component successfully built into an SL part) in the Excellence Award at last years 3DSNASUG conference, I have been considering having a go myself as I can see potential benefits for my customer.

Has anyone tried this before? Success / Failure?
How is it done?
How difficult is it?
Could a Standard Licence user achieve this on a SLA250/50 with SL 5170 resin?

I would greatly appreciate any comments / help.

Unfortunately I've lost my delegates list from last year. Can someone help me find Paul Freeman in the UK? I believe that DERC have reformed and renamed themselves to PDR?

If possible could you please respond to imunwin@dera.gov.uk or contact me as below.
