|Strong and flexible plastic vs. fine and detailed plastic [message #52706] Thu, 16 August 2012 12:27 UTC
Using Maya 2013 I have created a hollow, torus bracelet shape that I wish to have 3D printed. It is cut in half latitudinally to allow for cleaning. My walls are 2.5mm thick all around and I wish to have my bracelets in black with a relatively smooth, glossy finish. The question I have is which material: strong and flexible plastic or fine and detailed plastic would be best to create a smooth, glossy finish that is durable to wear but not too flexible that it loses its shape when worn?
I would greatly appreciate any help you guys could give me
