  1. That would imply that improvements in resolution can be made just by going to a smaller nozzle, something to think about. That mini is not bad, i can imagine fine features are hard but maybe not impossible especially if combined with green stuff modeling. But i would say that the blurb in the ultimaker shop says that x/y res can be less than 125 microns, (.125 mm) but if the nozzle is .4 mm surely that means that the resolution cant be smaller than .4 mm without tweaking, what is the element that i am missing here, what step of the procedure am i not understanding when it comes to that .4/.125 mm resolution issue
  2. Been interested in 3D printing for a long time and now i am in a position to get on. Ultimaker seems like my best choice for the resolution (would like to make resin kit like statues as well as gaming minis) and i dont care about the speed, (if it takes 5 hours to get the res i want let it take 5 hours) but in all my research some things come up again and again. The key to geed resolution is a heated build bed, is this true and if so is there a heated bed default on the Ultimaker? The resolution of less than .1 mm seems perfect and i have see examples of people doing this but it seems that it takes a lot of practice, (which i am prepared to do) but some modification to hardware/firmware, is this true or is it a case of it can do less than .1 mm ress out of the box but better res takes some tweaking? Finally the layered stripping that i see in most figures i assume is the slight bulge that each layer has when layed down requireing either a sanding down of the bulge or a filling in of the valleys, But is that stripping a real effect or just an optical illusion, i mean if i painted the model does this stripe effect disappear? There i think thats all of my questions, apperciate all answers and help and guideance on this pathway
