I'm wondering what the measurements should be for breakable connection wires?

Sadly, the metals do not yet allow us to print interlocking parts, as a result I'd like to make some of my designs, with temporary connecting wires that are as thin as possible to survive the print process, and then be easily broken upon arrival.

Does anyone have any experience on what dimensions thin little connectors should be?


the future merges with the past, and we are provided ever new opportunities to reinvent the now . . .

They'd have to be at least as thick as the minimum thickness required for the material.
