Something I put together to get a gauge for how certain types of geometry features might print at different sizes. Hardy scientific, but still useful for reference.
Since the horizontal resolution of a Makerbot isn't so great I've set it up to be printed vertically at a 15 degree angle with a supporting structure, which seems to be working well.
I'm including a flat version in case anyone wants to print it horizontally or modify it in any way.
Currently printing this in ABS using 40mm/s feed rate and 0.2 mm layer height. Even the thinnest wall thickness show up OK at that resolution.

So what's this mean?
We're sure watz would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
