I'm doing well with resin printing, and am now working FEDM printing. I am currently building a a somewhat elaborate house with small details like railings and thin doors.

I'm not happy with the (lack of) detail on these items done by FDM, so I kind of want to print the small thin items in resin. I can't see any reason not to, but I figured I would ask.

Resin will have the finer detail.

How fine can be an issue in any case.

I use FDM for 'gross' structure like buildings and vehicles in 15mm. Troops will get resin.

Printing FDM with the high detail necessary for details (like doors and windows on a building) makes the whole process very slow. Mixing them is the way to go, if the item allows it.

It's best when the model comes in separate pieces, with larger structural components in FDM and small attachable detail pieces in resin.
Usually, gel superglue is good for attachment.
