Minimum Wall Thickness
The features may break if it is too thin. The suggested minimum
wall thickness is 0.8mm.
and Engraved Features
The emboss is the feature protruded out on a surface. The
engraved details is the feature recessed on a surface. It is better
the features are at least 0.8mm. The higher the value the better the
feature will be printed.
The clearance between two features, walls, or separate parts are
recommended to be at 0.5mm minimum.
Maximum Bridge Feature Length
Bridge feature is a horizontal connection between two posts. It
is recommended the length of bridging feature is less than 15mm for
PLA. Some other materials may need the bridging even shorter. It can
avoid the need of supports.
for Nonsupport Structure
It is recommended to design nonsupport structure to be more than
60 degrees from the horizontal. The part may need to build with
supports if the angle is small.
3D printing (FDM) part is printed by extruding plastic along a
defined path. The part was built layer by layer to form the part.
The part surfaces may show imperfections. If the better surface
finish is needed, the part may do secondary operation such as
