thickest resolution you can print with good quality?

Recommended Posts

What do you consider high quality?

Without seeing any layers, or no weird oddities and a consistent extrusion flow?

I have seen prints of beautiful empire states buildings (pretty straight up) at 250 microns.

And yesterday I printed a dice (as a test) at 300 micron and it is beautiful too.

If you don't want to see any layers, there is a world of difference between what material you choose. PLA tends to be more shiny, what will emphasise the layers. ABS is more matt.

But in PLA, there is also a huge difference, where silver hides a lot of layers and other colours show them a lot more.
