Whilst interesting, that's not really how any of the hobby printers work, as they're virtually all DLP not SLA.

DLP printers use a UV light (rather than a laser) to cure an entire layer in one go, rather than a laser tracing each layer. They also print 'upside down', so the build platform lifts out of the resin with the model suspended.

This (https://all3dp.com/2/what-is-a-dlp-3d-printer-3d-printing-simply-explained/) is a much better article with relevance to the printers people are using for hobby work.
