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.

The full fill bottoms layers are NOT required....it takes forever at 100% infill BTW.

100% infill? Why would you do that? I admit, this is probably not a perfect model. Sorry if you wasted time and filament.

That's pretty cool. I'll have to try it.

Thanks, there's plenty of improvement, though. The largest spheres and boxes are pointless, for instance. I want to add a test for line thickness of extruding lines as well as ones that form gaps. Mine broke halfway because I'm having issues with HBP stickiness right now, but it printed fine until then although it also revealed some wobbliness that is easy to spot on these shapes.
