wow thats a long link.

each scale is approx 0.4 to 1.4mm so each ridge is divide by three so its pretty detailed.
Does anyone tell me the most detailed RP available?
I'd like to print three sample about 5mm thick x 20cm diameter circle with each scale arrayed and tesselated to fill the shape.
Three scale variations
1. 1mm scales
2. 2mm scales
3. 3mm scales
Does anyone know what RP will prnt this detail?
