I have been under the impression that you do not want to do resin as a 1st printer. Resin is expensive, hazardous to your health, requires more prep and cleanup, tank/bed actually wear out and are expensive, and outside of some specialty resin's just not that strong.

Not that resin printing doesnt have its place in the 3d print world, maybe just not for one just starting out.
