    Hi there, I'm wanting to print a tiny hat. It's 10mm in diameter and less than 4mm high. Seems this is too small for Shapeways, so should I make several of these and put them on a sprue? Would this even work?
    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Thanks, that's great to know. Do you have any tips on making a sprue? Would it need to be attached by boolean to the objects? I'm using Blender.

    just make a bar 1mm x 1mm or a wire frame when adding more objects to it
