What is the smallest thing you have made?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · What is the smallest thing you have made?

I recently had to repair a coin-sorter, where the motor drive gear had split in two. It was very small (only 4mm dia), so I was surprised to find that my UM2 made a perfect replacement. I used a 0.25mm nozzle with Innofil3D Fusion ABS (remarkable stuff) printed at 10mm/sec with 80% fan. The repair was a total success

 

What tiny items have you made?

 

Here is the gear sitting on a 5p coin

I made these with a 0.15mm nozzle.  I printed all of them at the same time so that each one while being printed allowed the other's to cool.  It looks more impressive in real life.
