Printing large amount of pieces on a table can be done provided you know for a fact that you can print anywhere on your table. If you get failures in certain areas, I would not print that many and stay away from the area that gives you
problems... then, when you have time, figure out what the Platform / projector/tuning problem is and fix it if you want to print volume.
Or simply make 1, make an RTV mold and shoot 20 waxes that you don't have to cure, clean etc etc...

I would do just like Daniel suggests. Print one master for each size needed then clean up print and join both haves. Make RTV mold of print with casting sprues. Don't forget to scale up for shrinkage. This method will give cleaner castings that will require less time to clean up. If you want to prep even more you can cast master and clean up some more before making RTV mold.

Or just farm it out to someone Like Daniel who does this all the time.

Franz
