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).
