I'm toying with an idea (no pun intended Wink ). But I'm not sure if the detail is too small for a print. I've done my best to scale up the design as much as possible, with the holes now at 1mm diameter. A couple of walls taper off to smaller than 0.7mm, but anything structural stays at 0.7-1.6mm minimum.

Here is a link to an image of the model. http://shpws.me/gTuh

Also, which material would be best for the details (I'm no good with abbreviations, so not sure what SF or FUD is, sorry)?

If need be, the holes could be drilled by a steady hand. But if they can print, it would be great. Smile
