Shocked Look a the bust. Eh. The bust... well you understand what I mean Smile

So, the problem is : the very thin hairstrand didn't pass very well. Probably too small.

I think it looks great. But I actually I like your model as well. Smile

Model features or details only show up when they are 0.1mm in White Strong & Flexible. At all points the model needs be at least 0.25mm thick to insure the integrity of the model.

For anyone interested you can see the 3D model at http://www.shapeways.com/model/3672/galatean_dream.html

Cheers!

Robert

Hi Robert,

I'm confused by your details. Were they a typo?

I did get the impression that the detail is limited to .1 millimeters from other posts here.

But I was told that walls/thicknesses should be 2-3 millimeters thick. And you have written .25 millimeters thick. Was this a typo?

Hi Whystler,

No, it was not a typo. The subject is actually quite complicated. We need to make a tutorial on this.

With White Strong & Flexible you can build walls of 0.25mm thick. The problem they are not very strong. Just imagine two cubes of 2x2x2 cm connected together with a bar of 5 cm wide and 0.25x0.25 mm thick. If you pick it up it will most certainly break. Let alone that we have to ship it to you. That is the reason that the common statement is 2-3 mm.

Does that make sense?

Cheers!

Robert

Ohhhhhhh kay, got it Smile

The printer will not print walls thinner than .25 mm.

But if the printer prints walls smaller than 2mm, there is risk of breakage. If the printer prints walls as thin as .25 mm, breakage is pretty much assured .

Is that right?
