hey there
i want to create lots of these "Pips' (see drawing) in an array of colors.

there are no features smaller than 0.5mm

is the spacing between the objects sufficient at 1mm total distance......or would it be better a 2mm?

in the image there is 6 pips......this is one set......i wish to print around 15 to 20 of these:

what kind of bounding box is best? should i stack them or have them tessellating along a single plane?
can i simply connect them by adding posts.......or if anyone can post links to previous examples? not the bearing i have already seen that one. ^^

what does 'medium accuracy' mean on the design rules page, its a bit ambiguous?
this project requires a push fit.......original post here:

......and finally.....sry about this but i have never added colour....and the help page talks about textures and uv maps. this is beyond me
i use solidworks 2011 ....... since each set will be one solid color is it as simple as applying an appearance? i hope it is but seriously doubt it!

don't feel like u have to answer all the questions to reply.......if u only know one answer id be grateful to hear it.
