    Can someone look at this and tell me if it can be printed and maintain its detail, it is about 22mmX4mmX5MM with 3MM text extruded from it. If this works I am looking at making some more 1/25 scale parts to use as resin mold masters.
    I assume that white detail would be the best material for this, how smooth would it come out?

    Hi misterzr,

    Judging from your model your pushing the limits of the technology. Especially if you would like to use it as a master for casting.

    The details will show up but they do not have the "depth" as they would have in your 3D model. Does that make sense to you?

    Cheers!
