Or for large flats and trapped volumes you could also use a single sweep at
.7 unit/sec. I have gone down to .5 unit/sec on a single sweep on the
sla500 and sla5000.

  To avoid bubbles on large flat surfaces, do multiple re-coats for those
flat sections and set the speed of the zephyr to 1 unit/sec.

  Increased build time, is the drawback.

  Hope that's helpful.

    the inside and sometimes on the surface ) , this affect the
    surface quality of the final part.
    i´ve tried everything to get ride of bubbles but i´m not suceed
    every build.
    I don´t know if others materials have the same problem or not.
    Besides this i´m satisfied with the material.
