I didn't find this info anywhere so here's my question:

I want to print custom cogs for a project of mine and I need this to be precise to about 0.5 mm

Is this possible

Thank you

The printer resolution goes to about .1mm, but the material can change it slightly. Overall, .5 should be fine, just make sure that they are not any sort of support walls or they may get broken during shipping or printing.
