Excellent stuff there!If I can give my contribution, the models in the attached images are all made with my resin LCD printing.
I started with filament printers, but the surface of the pieces, with the characteristic lines, could not satisfy me, so I switched to an Anycubic resin printer, quite cheap, but with a 12 x 6.5 cm printing plate, a little too small.
I now use a Phrozen Mighty 4K printer, which I am very happy with (printing volume 20 x 12 x 22 cm).
As someone has already written if you use good quality resins, the smell of the print is insignificant, recently also resins that can be washed in water have come on the market, so you don't have to use isopropyl alcohol to clean pieces.
As 3D CAD design program, I started with Thinkercad, but it's a bit basic, so I switched to Autodesk's Fusion 360, which is very powerfull and get a license-free version for hobbyists; it's more complex, but it's really great, anything can be done.
Last thing as a slicing program to transform CAD drawings into printer-readable files I use Chitobox, of which there is a free version, simple, but complete and functional.
The models seem to be very stable for the moment, even outdoors they did not give me problems, for the duration I will know in 10 years.
My only caveat would be the running costs. The water washable resin is very expensive and tends to shrink slightly if left outside for any length of time.
I use the Elegoo standard resin in my Mars printer and it is still quite smelly! It also requires quite warm conditions, or it get quite thick and parts don't print very well. Increasing the temperature increases the smell, but more recent printers have filtered air extraction which reduces the problem somewhat.
Resin parts are susceptible to slight warping during printing and curing, so getting the orientation right to mitigate this can be trial and error. This all adds up to increasing the run costs even more.
For a first foray into 3d printing, filament is probably the right direction, as the learning curve is easier and domestic approval easier to gain!!
