I'm currently designing a small bowl, that I want to print in ceramics.

The wall thickness checker is warning me about a 3mm minimum wall thickness, and I wonder if anybody has any experience in going more towards 2mm. Does it get very fragile? The total dimensions of the bowl are about a 13cm sphere.

Thanks!

No one should have experience at 2mm as 3mm is the minimum.

I made a bowl recently with these dimensions: 11.762 w x 3.39 d x 11.728 h cm

It needed to 4mm thick as it was rejected at 3mm. The rules for thickness are. I made my bowl below 300mm to stay under 4mm thickness.

If bounding box x+y+z is 120-200mm: 3mm · x+y+z is 200-300mm: 4mm · x+y+z is 300-400mm: 6mm
