We like thick layers when we 3D-print!
We 3D-modelled a candy bowl and a stackable box to test 3D-printing objects utilizing thick layers. Normally the diameter of a 3D-printer’s nozzle is .four mm. We drilled this bore up to 1. mm – which permitted for much more plastic flow and thicker layers.
The outcomes are stronger objects and also an exaggeration of the step attributes of the layers. Surface smoothness is not so relevant for many objects and by producing thick layers they can turn out to be a good function – specially for decorative.
