Trying to make something on my new 3d printer

Awesome concept! (Yours?) ambitious project.
Have you started already?

If it’s your first time 3D printing, I’d highly suggest brushing up on every tip & trick there is in supports. The downward facing teeth (upper jaw) is the first troublespot. Without seeing the other angles, I’m sure there are plenty more. Simply hitting the “Auto Generate Support” function in any slicer will more often result in too many supports in one region and not nearly enough in others. With over a decade in resin 3D printing, I can state that thoughtful manual supports are the way to go.

The 5-part series starting here lays out many of the precautions and thought processes to take (regardless of what slicer you use)…

Good luck!
