I am currently in the middle of a projet watch part and received my first "prototype" made from WSF in night black. I was impressed with the overall outcome, but the night black was more dark grey. I have just got a message back from my test pilot saying that
"It can be made to fit, but its a little tight around the lugs, so a half mill will have to be shaved off here and there"
If the design was a 1:1 copy should I expect these problems? Would I get a different result if it was in stainless steel or would it be the same tolerence?
So WSF is the better of the two materials? Hmm I may have to review my process and go for an injection mould or something. I am looking at a run of about 100 prints of 4 different parts (not all at once) so for me to adjust each one is going to be time consuming.
I need it to have a smooth finish and for it to be strong and accurate. Is there any other options?
The most accurate would be Frosted Ultra Detail. It should have a smooth finish. There have been problems lately with ribbed surfaces, but from what I've heard that the problem is being solved.Your friendly neighborhood Moderman
