Just to add something for a new person, there are layer hights that will work better or more consistent on your specific printer due it's mechanical properties. I mean by that that it's possible that your print result could be better with a layer hight of 200 micron instead of 150 micron for example...
OK I guess it's already to late for you since the post is now 2 months old and no one answered your questions First things first the aluminium plate should be a cast (fine) milled aluminium plate that is very important, it results in a metal plate with a minimal on stress that expands evenly in all ...
