My slider model was acceptable the way it was, but the printer would always flare out on the first few layers, so I had a few options.
- I could trim off the plastic that blocked the potentiometer socket after printing and drain the cavity.
- I could elevate the print so the first layer wouldn't be part of the model.
- I could use a different face as the bottom.
- I could model in enough clearance so the flare wouldn't interfere with the socket.
I decided to go with the last option since it would be foolproof with a resin printer. I added another cavity at the bottom with ample clearance from the center, but the slider still had a thick wall so it would be durable.
