How thick are the layers of material in 3D printers?
For plastic, Sculpteo has two layer thicknesses available. A standard thickness of between 100 - 150µm and a higher definition layer thickness of 60µm (the 60µm is only available on the White SLS plastic).
The polyamide objects we 3D print have an average precision of ± 0.3 mm for pieces under 100 mm and a global precision of ± 0.3% for pieces 100 mm or larger.
