@Hayfieldsecondly my inability of being able to use said machine
I may have misunderstood a previous post but the longevity of the resin seems questionable if unpainted and left in sunlight
For the Templot chairs you don't need any ability to use the printer -- the files from Templot are ready to use. Just follow the instructions to make a few clicks on the computer and switch the printer on.
For other models, lots of modellers are making their model files available if you don't feel able to use CAD design software yourself, for example on RMweb. And there are huge libraries of other stuff online if you need a Toby jug or a new part for your vacuum cleaner.
Yes, resin-printed items are susceptible to UV light (as are many other plastics). They will harden and crumble over time if left in sunlight. They need to be painted to offer some protection, and preferably kept away from strong sunshine. Wayne probably mentions the need to paint his 3D-printed track bases in the instructions.
