25 micron layers, 0.25 mm nozle, an insane amount of mesh detail

  • These aren't perfect, but they are the first prints I've tried at ridiculous resolution on my newest printer.

    25 micron layers 1/6th scale head scan

    40 micron layers 20 mm x 100 mm x 0.25mm tube

    25 micron and 40 micron layers

    They are printed in PLA on an FDM printer, with a Duet 2. The mini face is 1/6th scale head scan with millions of polygons... there is an exaggerated amount of detail added to the mesh to provide "pore data" for the print, hence the bumpiness. It is printed at 25 micron layer heights with a 0.25 mm nozzle. The tower is printed with the same nozzle and extrusion width but with 40 micron layers, it is 20 mm x 100 mm x 0.25 mm (wall thickness). I'm printing straws at this point (at the same time the world is banning them! lol).

  • Beautiful! What;s the printer like?

  • @mrehorstdmd thank you! if you look at my post history I made a thread about it and I included later in the thread a short video walk around.

    You and I talked briefly about this printer when it was in idea form on the reprapfirmware forums, years ago.

  • Very impressive!!

  • @bot Awesome!

  • Thanks, guys!
