I'm converting a model from a 12mm tall version I created for another project to be a 5cm tall ornament to be printed in ceramic.

The 5cm scaled up model is at http://shpws.me/ndfJ

There's some detail that's smaller than the design guidleines recommend, and there's some sharp corners.

Would I get away with keeping the internal corners the same and making the external corners (in red) just slightly rounded - maybe 0,5mm radius?
