Detail Test, Metric

  • White

    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.


This is a model used to test printing detail of various materials. To see a detailed key and a high resolution example printed in Stainless Steel, visit This object is tiny and includes many details in the 0.0 to 1.0mm range; it many not print in all materials, but I've made it available in all in case you want to try.


IN: 0.727 w x 0.727 d x 0.727 h
CM: 1.846 w x 1 d x 0.324 h


This might come in handy. I'm printing really tiny things, and I might need to experiment with different material. I found that I can't make a peg that it less than 2mm, it turns out flat.

Thanks for your comments! Yes, it's steel; I know when it's shot that close-up it's really hard to tell what the material is... I didn't think the descriptions would be legible if scaled down on this site, but I can try when I get back into town in a few days.
