That would depend on what printer you have vs what material you select at Shapeways. These particular models were done in strong and flexible, the lowest cost and lowest resolution. I’m not sure what that is but I found this quote on one of Shapeway’s blogs:
Shapeways’ Ultra Frosted Detail Plastic can make details as fine as 0.1 mm
So, that means something like the MakerGear M2 would do that- at least in theory. From their site:
- Z resolution: 0.1mm to 0.25mm recommended. User selectable down to 0.01mm
What I am wondering is if there is some way to have a mixed resolution, ie the body at .1mm, then when it gets to the face, .01mm. Probably not but that would be neat if I could.
Now, the M2 is $1900, so it’s not cheap but if it will do that sort of resolution, it would be worth it.
