Going all mathematical on you.. (Sorry, too much calculus in college)... have you heard of the Nyquist theorem?

What does this mean for 3d printing?? Is Stony off his rocker? Probably.. but it's actually simple.. to get

**maximum** smoothness out of the printer, the faces should be no wider than 1/2 of the "minimum detail" value. WSF has a minimum detail of 0.2mm.. so your faces should not be more than 0.1mm across.

I know, that turns what was simple and tiny into a high-poly model, and is above the 1m triangle limit on large items.

But.. you asked (grin)

Small note: if you select one of the polished materials, you'll lose some detail, but that also means that you will gain smoothness across these facets.
