I am also having trouble with the cover (the grill). It seems to be messed up on the left side (as seen in the green print of it you show). I try to repair it in Meshmixer and that does not help. I try to make it solid and most disappears. I brought it into to CURA and used the mesh fixes there and it prints with lots of plastic not quite connected and making strings of plastic and the surface (as seen in that picture) not smooth at all.

Thanks for pointing those problems out. its the first thing ive done in a long time and tbh it was a little rushed.. glad to see it printed out ok though :)

When I brought the file into 3D builder to separate all of the pieces for printing it wanted to repair the files - which I did. This created some issues with the cover piece (filled in a couple of the holes) Those were easily repaired. What I didn't notice until I brought it into the slicer was that there were then some issues with the surface as well. I'm probably going to print it anyway because those imperfections look easily dealt with in finishing.

Because I this I decided to bring the whole file into Meshmixer which pointed to MANY issues with your file. Issues that it couldn't repair without actually destroying the objects. In any case, clearly it printed fine with your printer and will probably be okay on mine, but I thought you might want to know that the file had issues just in case you wanted to figure out what went wrong.

This looks amazing. I'm currently printing out the body on my Anycubic Photo so it'll be interesting to see what it looks like in resin. I did hollow it out first, though.
