I am poised to purchase a Ultimaker 3 3d to construct a prototype of my invented medicinal capsule. The prototype can be larger than than the finished product in order to view the invention in a larger size for modifications and functionality so, in that respect, I might be on solid ground. My concern is whether I can reduce the size to ingestible size; that is, about 23mm length and say, 6mm in diameter. The capsule must be thin walled, perhaps .146mm. In short, I need to replicate a #00 size gel capsule with some new features out of the new TPU 95 A filament. Might it be done? What says you? Thanks for the help.
