I love it!
I wish I could have one but Slic3r is doing weird stuff at the scale I want to print it (4cm), like not printing the thin part of the V's X's.
It would also be cool to have the disk rotated 90º clockwise and a bottom layer.
Any chance you can upload the original design to customize it?

Hi, of course :) Fusion 360 file is already uploaded so please feel free to change whatever you wish. I printed the model on DLP printer, but I just added another version for FDM. 'X' and 'V' should print OK with 0.06mm layer resolution.

It's probably an issue with nozzle size, not layer height. Many slicers will just discard details it considers too small for your nozzle to resolve. Even if you don't have a smaller nozzle, you can see the difference in your slicer's preview if you change the nozzle setting to various sizes.

You are right, with smaller nozzle it would definitely print better. There are 2 versions anyway, one is definitely working with FDM 0.4mm nozzle and the other one will print on DLP/SLA with 40um resolution and probably on FDM with smaller nozzle.
