Default How Best to 3D Print Resin Walls

I just bought a new ELEGOO Mars UV Photocuring LCD 3D Printer, and for my first project, I want to try some structure walls. What's the best orientation for printing the walls... laying flat, standing up, or at some angle?

Dwight remember the post..I think it was on here..about building engine shells or passenger car sidewalls? I think he did them standing up in a triangle three side per print pattern. Said something to do with stability and strength while it’s printing hot.

Dwight,
I know nothing about the resin printers, other than what I hear from people on a Gauge One 3D forum that I belong to.
They seem to print at all kinds of different angles and it all seems to depend on how much they can fit into the printer.
I would suggest best to try a bunch of different test orientations and decide what works best for you!
Logically I would have thought that is there are something like lines of bricks, I would orient it along those lines as I do with filament, but then resin may be different.
Sorry not to be helpful!
All the best,

Jason,
That was me, and that was to do with a 'filament' printer.
The resin printers work with a bath of resin with the model that is hardened layer by layer as it lifts out of the resin.
Much smaller volume, and no issues about stability.
But you have a good memory!

Hey David,.. oh okay. I know nothing about 3D printing. Just what I could remember from your post. 😉
