Hello, I'm currently designing a part that I would like to get printed at shapeways.
What is the minimum gap that I can have between sections of a part? (think of long slit for venting that is very thin). I know that on some printers if the gap is too small, then material will be fused between the sides of the hole.
I'm considering the Strong & Flexible Plastic.
