Close ups of prints

Hello.

I'm wondering if somebody could post some in focus close ups of prints at various layer heights next to a ruler, or something else we can scale from? I am unable to see what the UM2 Rev 3 can do, I really want to buy but need some imagery to prove the system :)

Cheers.

    This is the only one I have "on tap". It's an old test print series I did for someone looking to buy the original UM and wanted to see the difference between layer heights. Someone else will have better pics I'm sure.

    X/Y resolution is just as important as Z. The X/Y is limited by nozzle diameter which is .4mm so anything you print will have a .2mm radius of curvature to it. For example if you print a cube, the 4 vertical sides will have rounded edges with .2mm curvature (the other 8 edges will be 90 degrees perfect sharp). Printing thinner than .05mm starts to be a waste of time. You can only see the layers because of the nature of the way light reflects off a shiny surface. If you paint .1mm layers they disappear.

    Exactly the sort of thing I was looking for. Cheers!
