I am wondering if this is possible as well. In my case, I would use them for laser beam shaping. I dont think the printer material can withstand that power.. who knows, I wish you good luck with this! :)

Hi! I've found proves, that using sla for lens printing is possible. Here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1006913 and here https://formlabs.com/blog/lenses-3D-printed-formlabs/ . Furthermore, there is company, which develops such technologies on industrial level https://www.luxexcel.com/

This desing won't cover your needs. Lasers are usually used with more serious optics due to energy aspects, but more for acceptable focusing. Thank you and good luck with your project!
