Vertical features are often overlooked but they play a very important part in whether or not your print will be successful and how strong the final result will be. We always recommend designing walls with a thickness of at least 1 mm with a minimum viable thickness of 0.6 mm.
In order to achieve the best results we recommend a minimum thickness of 0.6 mm for unsupported walls.
Pins and columns are often used in electronic and end product casings. For best results avoid designing pins with a diameter smaller than 3 mm.
TIP: Adding a chamfer or fillet at the base of your pins will result in much stronger parts.
Embossed details should have a minimum line thickness of 1.6 mm and a depth of 0.5 mm or higher.
Engraved details require a minimum line thickness of 1.2 mm and a depth of at least 0.3 mm.
When designing an assembly of parts we suggest leaving a clearance of at least 0.4 mm around moving/sliding parts.
Our ABS+ requires supports in order to print overhanging areas.
It's important to keep this in mind during the design phase since the surface in contact with the support material will exhibit a rougher finish compared with the rest of the model.
