I would refer you to the picture that Fastrack has of his prints.
the pic in the "made" part of this page
the smaller polar bear cubs in it are maybe 2 inches tall
at 1 inch i suspect the details will become more "blurred".
it is a matter of a number of variables.
how good is the printer? (this is a really big factor!)
what was the slice (the z)
speed of print can be a factor (slower is typically better for quality
but not necessarilly)
and really a lot of other varibles.
not trying to be obtuse, just letting you know there are many factors.
the short answer is
if i was looking to print this at 1 inch and wanted a good print
i would probably slice at .15
and if the print was not good i would go to the slower replicator default
of 40mm/sec
if you are using a different printer i can't really advise.
but i would highly recomend experimenting to get a good feel for the printer settings.
oh, o.k. thank you. Do you know how it looks at 1in.? Does the design still stand up? by which I mean look good.
I made it with the intent to be resized.
open the stl in your slicing application and resize it as desired.
I think the default size is pretty big. (not positive on the dimensions, but
i think it would be over 5 inches tall at the default if memory serves)

So, what are the dimensions of this?

Printing now. 5%, 1 shell. I resized it to 75%, now I'm thinking 50% would've been better. He/she is a little large vs the parent :)

And your right.. Once I printed the parent.. I needed to print the cub. HEHE
Yeah I did not scale the models the same, i just make them mostly the full build size, and leave it to the folks printing to size as they desire.
I figured that :) Middle cub is 75% your size, small little ones are 50%
That is really awesome, thanks for sharing the pics/information. Glad to see this one in hard copy. hopefully this weekend I'll get back online and can get caught up on printing!
The pic is really awesome, like a familly!
