Yeah, with something that small it's probably irrelevant, but I was printing something this week that took about 11 hours at 0.2mm. At 0.05mm it would take over 44 hours!!

Yeah I have done a few prints that Have taken a fair amount of time. It just depends on the end result you want though.
There is a noticeable difference in the quality when I change it to slice that low, so if I want the quality and being hardly able to tell that it's 3d printed then thats what I shall do.
If speed is the key and i'm not to worried about the quality as much, i'll up it to .1 or .2. Anything highers is just SOO bad that whatever it was, is not whats being printed  :laugh: .

The model had critical dimensions and moving parts, so I cancelled at about 20% when I saw it wasn't going to work. Now I need to find a time where it can print at 0.1mm for about 24 hours.
