I am trying to understand if it's possible to 3D print a double-walled cup -- imagine a cup inserted into a slightly larger cup and then the opening between their rims sealed. Obviously there's need to be an opening somewhere to get the filler out, and this is fine, but I am a bit fuzzy on the details -
1. If it'd be possible to keep the overall thickness of the double wall under 3-4 mm? And what material this will require?
(edit) Alright, so I guess this covers the thickness for Strong & Flexible materials. Consider this question closed.
2. What would be the smallest required size of the opening for getting the filler out? I just don't know if the filler is a fine-grained powder or something lumpy or sticky.
Thanks a bunch for any pointers.
