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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
