Which size can engraved details be?

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I want to print an object in ABS with surfaces (mostly horizontal, but also some curved and almost vertical) that have engraved details on them. What size (width, depth) should the engraved lines have at least for a good result?

Greetings,

thox

Hi and welcome to the community.

I don't remember the exact details, but in x/y direction (left/right), it shouldn't be less than 0.5mm. In z direction it can be as low as the layer height you print with (0.1mm is pretty fine and you can go lower but it takes ages to finish).

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
