I'm curious if someone with some experience working with the stainless steel materials can give me an idea of what I can expect from this design.
The points on the inside are what I am most concerned about.
Will the resolution be high enough to get a good point?
If the points do print okay, are they at high risk of breaking during the pre-infusion stages of production?
Dimensions shown below are in mm.

This design should be OK. The inner points are sort of protected so they should remain intact.

Awesome, Thanks.
I work in manufacturing and sometimes our machine operator is not the same person that sends the file.
So they don't always know what they're looking for.
I just had the image in my head of someone reaching into the support material and sticking their finger right in the middle of points.
I suppose that's pretty unlikely though.
I am generally a walking example of murphy's law, so I always imagine something like that happening.
Thanks!
