Tips to minimum wall thickness

In your "Tips to design 3D printable models" the minimum wall thickness for the 0.4 Hotend is 0.8-1.2mm. For the 0.8 Hotend the minimum wall thickness is 1.6mm.

Why is a wall thickness of 0.8mm ok for a 0.4 Hotend while it is not for for a 0.8 Hotend?

Hello,

It is because is not recommended to print walls with only one perimeter, the minimum recommended is two perimeters:

for 0.4mm hotend the minimum wall thickness is 0.4mm*2=0.8mm

for 0.8mm hotend: 0.8mm*2=1.6mm

 

You can reduce it to 1 perimeter but is not ideal.
