That makes sense but minifigs heads look very clean as well so that had me questioning how you print it this clean.


I would have been really surprised if the tolerance would have been higher then 0.05mm I don't thing it would be this nice. My guess was Colorfabb PLA, but had not heard of Polyalchemy or Fillamentum and see they have the same tolerances.

Going to try those out sometime, thanks 🙂


The bottom of the heads don't look as nice as the top, but I did add a fillet where the neck meets the bottom of the head to make it a slightly less problematic printing transition. Also, Cura's supports did a very nice job. Most of the filaments I have are Fillamentum/FilamentOne. They've printed consistently great for me. The Polyalchemy stuff is very unique with an extremely shiny, almost metallic appearance.
