The Longer Orange10 is an SLA Printer which prints from a vat of liquid resin versus using a hot end and plastic filament. 


This is the printer we have - https://amzn.to/3235x0A


This printer is good, but it is a low end SLA printer with some drawbacks. The print bed is a little harder to settle in on the Z than the Elegoo. There are four screws that all need to be loosened. You then hit the Set-Z button and it goes onto a piece of paper over the LCD display and you tighten the screws. but with the four of them, you want to be careful not to tighten them each fully until you have tightened them all a little. It tends to pull one side up. With some practice, I think it will be easy enough to do. The initial test I did had some excess resin on the first layer and the first few layers were a little thinner than they should be.


As far as items that you will need for using the Longer, they are about the same. You can use either the Manufacturer's Slicer, or you can now use Chitubox with the Longer Plug-in.
